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.

Grand Am SE 3.4L

I heard a noise that got louder as you picked up speed(like using a stick against a bicycle tire, the faster you pedal, the louder that sound gets). The ABS, check engine soon, service engine soon and a few other lights kept coming on and dinging and when I put on the brakes or went around a curve, the brake pedal would go down then back up against the pressure I was applying to the brake. Anyway, I took it to the dealer. They said that the wiring harness broke lose and frayed from rubbing the tire. Then when they took the wheel off they found that they had to replace the hub with a kit, replace the bearings, replace the wiring harness and a few other things... Anyway, the whole repair with labor was $746.40. I have had 8 cars in my lifetime and never had this many problems? I just wonder what caused this to happen.
