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.

Dealership service technician indicated the rear axle was coming loose from the rear differential, recommended replacement. Dealership replaced rear axle seals. Dealership indicated problem was caused by vehicle being suspended by differential and resulting downward strain on axles. This has not occured while we have owned this car (approx. 3 years). The front axle seals were replaced in a recall on 7/18/03.
