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.

The front frame support will rust out. This will cause the wheel to fall off. The part I'm talking about is a long steal tube part that hooks your whole front end on one side of car. There is a recall on the control arm, but not on this part. This is a big safety problem that needs to be looked into.
