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.

Two weeks after purchasing our 2011 Chevrolet Equinox, the engine light came on and the car lost a lot of power. We took it to the shop and they claimed there was a recall on the computer system that controlled the steering. Then, two weeks later, the engine made a loud, strange, noise when it started. It drove a bit, then completely died in the middle of the street. It was restarted, then it died and had to be towed away. Dealer said it is a faulty cam shaft. This car has 900 miles and it now 30 days old.
