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.

Driver was alone traveling westbound on I-64. While traveling at the posted highway speed (65), after coming over the crest at mile marker 242. The driver noted a loud snapping sound. Driver then noted with peripheral vision that the right front wheel had been ejected from the vehicle. Driver's immediate reaction was to remove foot from accelerator and to continue maintaining control. That is continue in a straight path with both hands on the steering wheel to prevent an over correction scenario. Driver tried to apply pressure to the brakes to gradually slow down. However, after applying pressure the driver realized that he had no brakes. Driver continued with the controlled crash and allowed the truck to drift to the right shoulder where the truck eventually came to a stop. Right front spindle snapped. Since rotor and brakes ejected with the wheel driver had no brakes. Witness available in red Jeep (license # available). More details available upon request.
