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.

I have a 2005 Toyota Tacoma prerunner 4X4 with only 83,000 miles. There is recurring issues with the front wheel bearings going out. Front left has been replaced 3 years ago, then front left stub axle was replaced less than a year later under warranty by Toyota. The right front wheel bearing also went out 2 years ago and were replaced and now the left side is going out again.

Back in June 2005 I observed a significant "rubbing" noise coming from the front end of my 2005 Toyota Tacoma. Upon taking the vehicle to the dealership for warranty repair I was informed that the left front wheel bearing was bad. On October 24th 2005 I returned to the dealer experiencing a similar "rubbing" noise and was told on this occasion that both the left and right front bearings had failed. This vehicle only has 20 thousand miles on it. I was informed that they must be poorly manufactured bearings. I'm concerned that this may be an ongoing problem as well as a safety issue.
