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 2008 cadallic Dts was trying to start on its on. The keys were on the table and the spare key hanging on the key rack. In doing so it caused my car to catch on fire which caught my garage on fire. My family was all in bed when we were awoken by a person passing by the house and recognized that the light he was seeing was a fire. In return our lives were saved, also it was detected the next day that our spoke detector battery was dead. We thankful to god above for the young man who just happened to be a firefighter and our hero.
