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.

Just before I traded in my 1997 Cavie for the 2002 I have now, the '97 kept dying whenever I took a sharp turn. Didn't feel like putting money into the car seeing as it had recall and repair often. But so far my 2002 is pretty good. Don't have any problems yet.... of course, it only has 25,000 on it. Not time for the fixing to start YET! :)
