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 helping one of our consumers resolve an issue with this mfg. When I looked at their street legal motorcycles, I discovered that they have no emission control equipment at all, yet they claim they are C.a.R.B., D.O.T. and E.P.a. certified. Here is a link to the imposters web page. if you have any questions, please feel free to E-mail me or contact me by phone. Randy castleman program representative II's (949) 320-2041 *note* I put in vehicle information for a motorcycle mfg. That is not associated with this mfg that the complaint is about. Your web complaint form would need an "other" option when selecting vehicle mfg info.
