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.

Vehicle was leaking oil, the consuemr was told that the vehicle had a loose screw, the vehicle stalled while driving due to a faulty computer chip, the dealer reset and upgraded the chip, while backing up and when coming to a stop the vehicle makes noise, the dealer has been unable to duplicate the problem but lubricated the plastics around and inside the car, this minimize the noise but it still can be heard.
