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.

My LF wheel bearing needed to be replaced due to some rattling sound that made my car sound like a jet plane about to take off.

problem #6

May 312005

Grand Am SE 2.4L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 45,000 miles

I noticed a significant grinding sound in the front wheels (specifically the front driver side) and took the car in to the dealership to have it inspected. They told me the bearings in the front wheel hub assembly had failed and the piece required replacing. $850 and 2 hours later, I was back at home...where I discovered the piece was available online for $75. I'd been had.

It is also notable that they informed me the entire underbody of the car is covered in "superficial" rust.

Grand Am SE 2.4L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 55,000 miles

Noticed a grinding sound in the front driver side when turning, also ABS and Trac Off lights would come on at same time. Took it into dealership, they said the front hub assembly in the drivers' side had to be replaced. They charged 450 for labor, 400 for the part, something I later found out was a huge rip off. He also made mention that the entire underside of the car is covered in rust. That was two years ago, I can only imagine how rusty the undercarriage is now. Had brakes replaced around the same time because they sounded like a freight train stopping, even with new brake pads they sounded just as bad. I have found no fix for the brakes.

made a grinding sound that was fairly annoying and wasted much of my gas money! 100 dollars per hub and 50 to have my buddy put them in.
