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.

The contact owns a 2005 Toyota Tundra. The contact stated that while driving 45 mph over a bridge, there was a loud noise and the vehicle immediately lowered. The contact stated that the rear driver's side tire exploded. The vehicle was towed to a dealer where it was diagnosed that both the lower and upper ball joints snapped and caused the rear driver side tire to explode from the force of the impact. The vehicle was repaired. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure. The failure mileage was 158,000.

I was driving in the local streets, and while making a right turn after stopping at a red light, the front passenger side of the vehicle suddenly collapsed with no warning. I was traveling at most 10 mph. The vehicle has never showed any sign of failure or noise until that day. After I pulled over to the side of the road, I got out of the vehicle to inspect the car and found the ball joint in upper control arm had completely tear itself apart from the wheel hub. Fortunately for me, no serious damage to the car other than the failed components and worn tires due to my having to drag the car on the side of the tire to pull over to safety occurred. I was not injured in the incident, but had I been driving on the highway at the time of failure, I wouldn't be here typing this. Afterwards, we had aaa tow the car to a local dealership to see whether Toyota will take responsibility of the failure of its part.
