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.

Passenger window shattered while driving down the street, apparently window was bound up. Spacers missing on driver and passenger side. Fortunately my mother was not injured, but covered in glass. Have taken in twice now for the driver window which keeps becoming loose or losing spacers that keep it in place.
