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.

Driveline vibration at over 57 mph. 24,000 miles. Dealer says there is nothing wrong, its normal for that vehicle! looking at it on lift for a hour, checked tire pressure, says everything is normal. There is a droning type noise definitely driveline related, any passenger with their eyes closed can tell when you are going over 57 mph. Either driveshaft problems or transmission, transfer case, rear end problem. Original tires hydroplaning at 24,000 miles. Had to replace tires, also alignment was off vehicle pulls to side. Second dealer also says there is no problem.

Tire has extreme wear and cupping, very dangerous to drive on, however, bridgstone/Firestone refuses to warranty defective tire and my vehicle has no front-end alignment problems.
