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.

We bought this car used. It is a very nice riding car if it would run. It started getting hot and we would let it cool down and it would be fine for a little while. The problem got progressively worse until we were stranded alongside the highway. we drove it in hitches to get it to a cadillac dealer. it was checked out and we were told it needed new head gaskets at a cost of $3,000. They would not guarantee their work and told us they usually are returned for the same problem within a year. When I said something to the salesman we bought it from his reply was, sooner or later they all have to be replaced. We located a place 100 miles away to fix it for $1800. It sits in front of my house as an ornament.
