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.

I took the car into the shop on 11/15/14 because of a loud exhaust sound. The mechanic advised the flex pipe was leaking and the flex pipe and catalytic converters (2) would need to be replaced. The cost is estimated at about $900. If the car is in idol, the exhaust seeps into the car and could cause carbon monoxide poisoning and death, if the windows are not cracked to allow for ventilation. Unfortunately, we cannot afford this repair at this time. The car is 6 years old and should not be falling apart piece by piece as it has been over the last couple of years. This part should be recalled, or should I say the entire car, B/C it has had so many recalls in the last couple of years.
