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 was changing a flat tire and the jack just failed on me last night and almost but my arm off. This is the first time the jack was being used. It was a flat road and it wasn't windy. The car was on a stable surface with no stones or anything else. The car almost landed on my hands and bent the rotor back plate !!!! I then noted that the jack was very unstable and maybe a little bent. I got help from a truck who stopped by. I checked with the dealer today to see if they can replace it under warranty (3 yrs old basically) but they just said no.
