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.

It was around 8:00pm. I was driving in light traffic around 25 mph heading West on alondra bl crossing downey ave in the city of paramount, when all of a sudden I heard screeching and the rear of the car started swaying side to side. I stepped on the breaks and the rear end of the car started turning to the left going in to the left lane. Cars on the left lane had to slam on the breaks to avoid colliding with me. I was able to slowly pull over to the side of the road. I called a mechanic, after inspecting the car he informed me that the suspension control arm on the rear driver side broke. He also said it could have been a lot worst if I was going faster, I can only imagine what the consequences could have been if I was driving on the freeway. I googled recall 20250xa060 (part number). I don't speak portuguese but it looks to me like that part has been recalled in brazil.
