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 recently noticed some strange clunking, popping and squealing noises coming from my car. After having my mechanic look at it I have been informed that the passenger side lower control arm rear bolt was broken and part of it remains but is no longer connected to the control arm. My passenger side front wheel was moving in and out approximately 2inches. In my research I have found no recall notice for this issue and feel it is a large safety issue.
