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.

NHTSC NEEDS TO HOLD GMC RESPONSIBLE FOR USING MATERIAL IN BRAKE LINES THAT RUSTS CAUSING THE BRAKE FLUID TO LEAK OUT RESULTING IN A FAILED BRAKING SYSTEM WHICH CAN CAUSE FATALITIES NOT ONLY TO THE DRIVERS BUT TO OTHER CARS ON THE ROAD.THIS HAS HAPPENED TWICE TO OUR BUICK CENTURY WITHIN THIS LAST 2 YEARS AND WE HAVE BEEN VERY BLESSED THAT BOTH TIMES WE WERE ON SIDE ROADS WITH VERY LITTLE TRAFFIC SO NO ONE GOT INJURED.
