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.

On my way to work this morning I noticed my car was running hotter than normal. When I got to work I noticed it was leaking a little. I thought it would be ok until I went to lunch so it would at least be cooler to get some coolant in it. When I left for lunch there was a pretty big puddle under the car and the coolant light came on when the car was running. I turned the car off and filled the resevoir with coolant. While driving the light kept coming on and then going off. It did that the whole time I was driving. Before I left to come back to work I checked under the car and there wasn't a puddle or any sign of leaking. On my way back to work the light came on and stayed on. When I got back I bent back down and still no sign of a leak. Popped the hood and the resevoir still looked like it was full. I'm curious to see what will happen when I leave to go home. Talk about a pain!
