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.

Since buying the car it has been in the shop more than out, have had problems traveling out of town ruined two trips. The window wipers were disconnected, alternator out, transmission out, dash rattles, motor under drivers seat is loose, and the air conditioner makes a high whine. The seat, and dash and transmission have been looked at three times and still not fixed. The car shifts hard into gear after replacing the transmission which took two times to the shop to fix. The tire light kept coming on during one of the out of town trips even though it was checked repeatedly.
