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.

When driving the car, at about 50 mph it will begin to feel like the wheels are cutting loose, like you are on gravel. It has also begun to make a howling noise that seems to be coming from the wheels? nobody seems to really be able to pinpoint the problem. We have thought maybe it had to do with traction control. It sent my husband into the ditch though. We're lucky it didn't send him into traffic!
