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.

While driving front bumper guard came off. Front bumper came off while driving on the highway at highway speed. Consumer thinks the problem occurred as a result of a low front and a sunken driveway. Even though they never had this problem with other vehicles and visitors vehicles. Consumer noted when pulling into and backing out the driveway, there was scrapping sound. This cause some plastic connectors on the bumper guard to become dislodged. Consumer thinks that the highway wind caused the bolts come off and the bumper fell off. Consumer feels this is a dangerous design flaw. There were no injuries or collision.
