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.

This afternoon while going out shopping I badly cut my finger while opening the door of my vehicle. The door handle of my vehicle is plated in chrome. This chrome is now coming undone, and is razor sharp. I plan on reporting this to the dealer tomorrow, but would also like register my complaint with NHTSA.

My 2008 Chevy Avalanche has a problem with the driver door and the rear door same side not opening or closing with the remote. This could be a safety hazard if I had to get into the vehicle in an emergency because the only door with a key lock is the drivers door.
