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.

My '13 te has had a vibration issue become more and more noticable lately. It's probably been happening to some extent for awhile, but now that I'm dealing with slow highway traffic more often, it's much more noticable and violent. Between 5-10mph (and sometimes up to 15mph) the front end shakes violently and eventually spreads to the cabin. I can replicate this at any time I wish on any type of road. Tires are balanced and vehicle is properly aligned. The steering does feel loose and like it's shaking at times while going over bumps or rough roads. So far the shaking happens: In 4WD in 2wd in 1st and 2nd gear in neutral in 4WD neutral under braking under acceleration in neutral with the engine off under braking in neutral with the engine off and in 4WD neutral with the engine off
