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.

The contact owns a 2002 Cadillac Escalade. On September 3, 2007, the contact plugged her television into the cigarette lighter and the vehicle began smoking. The vehicle then became engulfed in flames. Her husband doused the vehicle with water and drove it to the Cadillac dealer. The carpet was burned, the tracking system failed, and the wiring harness had to be replaced. The purchase date and powertrain were unknown. The current and failure mileages were 48,000.
