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.

Dec. 13, 2010 my car started on fire after putting it in "park." Insurance company says it is a total loss. approx. one week prior I took the car in to get the recall fixed. It was for an "engine compartment fire." The dealership I took it to says they fixed it, however they didn't have the paperwork for it when I came to pick it up! I have reason to believe they did nothing. I want GM or this dealership to get me a car because now I don't have one and i cant buy one. I am disabled and can't work to buy another one! This is totally unfair! Any one else want to get together over this recall problem? This is so unfair!
