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.

After I bought my car (in late December 2004), I noticed that the rear-end twitched (very slight swings to the left & right that quickly re-grabbed the road after losing traction). This occurred every time the roads were wet or slippery, and I used it as a signal to slow down. This twitching got worse as the tires wore down, and I had replaced the rear-tires 8 months ago, and got an alignment as well. I was driving southbound on Minnesota highway 77, approaching the Minnesota river bridge (mile marker 7). A rainstorm had gone by earlier, so the road was wet. I had slowed down, because the car's rear-end was twitching again, and it stopped twitching, and it wasn't twitching around when I got to the bridge. As I crossed the bridge, the rear-end let go, and the car (and I) crashed into the bridges safety median, nose first. The car didn't do any twitching for the 3 minutes prior to getting onto the bridge. As a result of the rear-end letting, the car is totaled, and I was injured.
