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.

This is a disaster waiting to happen..the arm broke at 15 mph (approx) dropping the front onto the street,breakinjg the axle CV joint,breaking plastic fender,bending fender,etc.. In the past, this part was forged steel. Now its thin stamped metal,definately a SAFETY issue! IF this had happened at HIGHWAY SPEEDS ,it woud have been FATAL!
