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.

i found out all the problems the day after i signed. this was my FIFTH car with this company. so i figured since i go back to them because the service and treatment has always been so great, aww sure, they will cover it right... f... no! for the pitman arm, ball joint (some jerk they had "fix" it put them in wrong and ruined them, new parts put in wrong equal wasted time and money) and some type of "bar" , the total is over $450. i had just put down all i had for the down payment and you would think they would have at least worked it into the cost of my blazer. im tempted to drop it back off on their lot. it does me no good since i am not driving it anyways. can you say pizzed?
