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.

My car ran hot and I stopped right away. Was towed to dealer. was kept 4 days and told car was ok. paid $100, drove less than 10 miles home and car was bubbling hot. I had to pay for second tow to shop, and then things started. It took 6 WEEKS to get my car back and was every thing was wrong with it from oil coolant unit to needing a new engine. I received car back with car now sputtering. I was told now that a coil needed changing and you cannot replace one but you needed to change all . There cost is going up and up and up. Finally after getting car back I was told they could not get all oil out of coolant system. I still have gunk in my system evev though I've paid almost $ 3000.00
