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.

1988 Acura Integra ls driving West on adams hill St. At ft. Sumter in san antonio, tex., about 6pm, 09/21/05. All of a sudden the car started spurting (missing) and the engine started smoking and caught fire as a result of an electrical failure. The fire was put out firer extinguisher and fire dept. The engine/elec.wires was totaled and beyond repair and no repairs done to date. Report to farmers ins., fire department, and process reporting to police. This is first electrical fire on this care since owned. Appears main fuse box ignited. Seems like manufacturer defect. Quick action prevented loss of life. The igniter was replaced in this car as result of recall.
