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 #1

  • 48,000 miles
The car was parked overnight. Once the temperature reach approximately 40 degrees, the brake lights activated, but deactivated when the car was started and I pressed the brake pedal. Over the course of a few months, this malfunction completely drained my battery.
