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 failed to start after being parked overnight. Engine would crank but not fire. Dealer found rear fuse assembly to be in a "melted condition"; fuel pump fuse/relay was charred. Entire fuse assembly required replacement. Dealer could find no cause for problem. My main concern is this assembly is located under the rear passenger seat next to the batteries. The power surge that caused such heat damage could, in my opinion, result in a fire in the vehicle, or at the very least burn anyone sitting in the rear seat compartment of the vehicle.
