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.

CarComplaints.com Notes: If you're in the market for a used, comfortably-oversized luxury sedan, you could do worse than the 2005 Buick Park Avenue.

This was the last model year the Park Avenue was available in the US market, and there's just not that many complaints about it. Plus, it has a hood ornament! There just aren't enough cars with hood ornaments anymore. Just make sure you avoid getting rear-ended as the car did very poorly in rear-impact crash tests.
