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.

The ABS Modules on this car was poorly made because it seems like everyone who has had this module had to replace it at some point. Without it you are without the ABS system, Traction control, Driving stability control, and your parking light will be on your dash till its replaced. Buying a new module (they dont make new ones anymore so youd be buying a refurbished one) costs around $650 and then the part must be registered to your car for it to work. Or you can send yours in for around $100-$150 to have it refurbished but you might need get it back for a week or so and without it you also lose power steering. I bought the car with all the lights on because previous owner didnt want to pay for it but I live in Michigan and winter is coming up fast and i dont have a choice :(
