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.

HEY...I AM SERIOUSLY PISSED OFF AT THE DOORNOB WHO THOUGHT OF PUTTING THE DAMN BATTERY UNDER THE BACK SEAT! FIRST OFF, ITS VERY DIFFICULT TO CHARGE THE DAMN THING WITH THOSE CABLES BEING RESTRICTED AND LITTLE AREA TO CLAMP TO. WHEN YOU DO GET THE CONNECTIONS OFF THE BATTERY, YOU HAVE TO DIG AND PULL BACK OTHER PARTS TO ACTUALLY GRAB THE BATTERY. SIMPLY...IT FROZE SOLID, I TRIED TO SHAKE IT TO HEAR THE FLUID AND THERE WAS NOTHING THERE...A SOLID ROCK THAT HAD EXPANDED THE SIDES OF THE BATTERY CASING. I TOOK IT INSIDE AND FINALLY OVER NIGHT IT HAS THAWED OUT AND YOU CAN HEAR THE FLUIDS MOVING AROUND ONCE AGAIN.

WHO THE HELL HAD THE BRIGHT IDEA OF PUTTING THE BATTERY ON THE FLOOR TUCKED UNDER THE SEAT LIP??? THERE IS NO HANDLE FOR THIS LARGE AC DELCO BATTERY, NO INSULATION OR CASE TO STOP THE DAMN BATTERY FROM FREEZING AND POSSIBLY EXPLODING?? IS THIS NOT A DANGER AND AN ISSUE??
