Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

Vehicle has around 98000 miles "light" went out on a Monday morning to go to work and found the diver side front wheel was all the way up into the wheel hub. After jacking the car up I was able to see that the spring had snapped. Immediately I had it towed to a GM dealer for repair. Contacted GM and dealer, both said this was due to normal wear and tear"?" my concern was that if this had happened on the freeway the car would have lost control and more then likely caused a serious crash. I have the old part and was told the spring on the passenger side was in good condition and did not need replaced. But I question that.
