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.

Could not change flat tire because lug nuts had swelled so wrench would not fit, had to buy a size bigger wrench to remove lug nuts. Also all the lug nuts on the car were swelled. When I asked about this I was told this is a common problem.

On a trip from Florida to Ohio there was a humming that started between 40 an 60 miles per hour. When it was taken to the dealer they identified it as a right front wheel bearing that was defective. The vehicle is a 2006 Toyota Avalon with 44,500 miles on it. I took the vehicle to another service shop to verify the defect and they confirmed that it was the right front wheel bearing that was defective. They replaced the part and gave me the defective one.
