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 #5

I was driving down the highway and the water pump went out. The car overheated and the warning light came on telling me to turn the car off. Before I was able to pull over to the shoulder the car stalled and I was unable to propel it forward any longer. I pulled over and had to get it towed.
