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.

George's imports in Kansas City, mo states that they do not have the tool required to test for corrosion on my transverse links, and therefore, cannot perform the recall repair.

Hi, I had recall 15031 performed on my car in may of 2012. The recall is for the front lower control arm, which due to corrosion from road salt can shear during driving and create a dangerous situation. Since my car was sold under the Saab brand, this recall was performed by GM as Saab had gone bankrupt before the recall service was performed. My issue concern is this: Despite 7 years in the North East prior, the mechanic deemed my control arms good enough, and sprayed the control arms with rust proofing rather than replacing. If you know about corrosion/ rust, you know it cannot be stopped by covering it up. Once it has started it'll rust the metal despite being covered up. Also I have noticed when changing from summer to winter tires, that the rust proofing sprayed on is flaking off. I am concerned in the coming years an unsafe condition will arise that the same as it had when Subaru/ GM issued the recall. Thank you for your time, [xxx] information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).
