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.

The infamous General Motors ignition-switch recall affecting my car evidently does not involve replacing the defective switch, but installing inserts in the base of the key, according to the service department at the Buick dealer where I bought the car. The insert closes the oblong hole and leaves a small round hole; this prevents people from hanging too much stuff on the key, which can cause the switch to shut off. This is not the fix I've read about. Shouldn't the car get a new, redesigned ignition switch?
