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.

problem #2

Mar 272014

C30 5-cyl

  • 53,500 miles


Left front spring broke while entering vehicle (parked overnight in garage). Evidence of anti-corrosion paint flaking off of spring in the area that the break occurred. This is the second broken front spring on the same vehicle, the previous one happened ~ 1 year ago (ODI# 10502668.). potentially a defect in the coating process allowing the coating to crack and let corrosion happen on the surface of the spring.

C30 5-cyl

  • 40,896 miles
Right front spring broke, fracture happened in the transition from the lowest coil (the one always on the spring seat) to the first active coil. Anti-corrosion coating was missing in that area, and a small amount of surface pitting was present. Photos of failed spring are available upon request (both in place before removal, and closeup view of the fracture on the coil that broke off).
