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.

Timing chains! car was parked, and went to start it and it wouldn't start. Had it towed to dealer and they told me it was timing chains and $2800. In doing some research, found that 2004 - 2006 models are having issues with the oil getting to the chains properly, because the hole is too small to lubricate chains. I buy high end cars and take care of them. This is the first time a timing chain has ever gone out on any of my vehicles. (been driving 40 some years) a mechanic has told me that they are seeing more and more of them. I think there should be a recall or at least someone looking into this. Another person that I know of had their 2004 cts timing chains go out while driving down the freeway and it blew the engine.
