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 purchased a new 2002 Buick Century from auto mall, putney, vt on 0/06/01- only have 57,000 miles on the vehicle now. Air conditioner fixed 3 times; still not working; brakes fixed; still squeak before my car could be inspected the line for the back brake lights which were rusted needed to be repaired in Feb 2008 [$300]. on March 1, 2008 my brakes went; brought to nearest garage; brake line rusted out and was replaced [$200] I was informed by the mechanic that the rocker panels were rusted and should not have passed inspection. Informed dealership; brought vehicle for diagnosis and estimate [$5,000]. was told by gmac that vehicle's warranty ended on 11/06/07. I am awaiting word weather they will cover some of the repair work.
