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 truth is this complaint is purely cosmetic. I know it's a truck, but I still like my vehicles to look nice. I wash my truck and wax it regularly, but this past year I started noticing a slight white spot on my black trucks roof. Within 2 months all the paint on the roof had peeled off. Now it's starting to happen on the hood.I plan to repaint it myself, because a body shop quoted me at $4,000. Luckily I've painted cars before so my only cost will be the supplies.
