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.

A D V E R T I S E M E N T S

MY GRANDCHILD WAS SITTING IN CAR WHILE I WAS COMING DOWN THE STEPS TO GET IN AND CLICKED THE LOCKS OFF AND OF A COUPLE OF TIMES AND THE CAR STARTED UP..SCARED BOTH OF US. SERVICE SAID THEY COULDN'T DUPLICATE IT SO I GOT IN & CLICKED A COUPLE OF TIMES AND IT STARTED RIGHT UP..

THEY SAID IT WAS NOT A CONCERN BECAUSE THE DRIVER WOULD HAVE TO PUT THEIR FOOT ON THE BRAKE IN ORDER TO ENGAGE TRANSMISSION INTO DRIVE. ANYWAY NO MATTER WHAT I TOOK MY CAR IN FOR, THEY COULD NEVER DUPLICATE IT..WHETHER IT BE THAT THE HORN WOULDN'T ALWAYS BLOW, OR THE WIPERS WOULD COME ON WHILE I WAS DRIVING DOWN THE HIGHWAY OR THE SMELL OF ELECTRICAL BURNING OF SOME TYPE. I WILL NEVER OWN ANOTHER BUICK!!!!!
