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.

Heard clunking noise from front right of car while accelerating/decelerating, when braking and while driving over uneven road surfaces. Took vehicle to dealer, there they found #2 sub-frame bolt had rusted through and the head had fallen out onto my garage floor. Looks as if #2 sub-frame bolt takes on a lot of water condensation dripping from the A/C unit. Will replace all six sub-frame bolts once the back ordered parts come in, after drilling out the remainder of the #2 sub-frame bolt. #2 sub-frame bolt looks to hold together the right lower suspension arm to the body/sub-frame.
