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.

First the car wouldn't start, brakes smelt on fire, also noisy brakes, car never started until 4 turns, car pulls a few inches to right with no control of steering car would go dead at anytime even while driving. Electrical would happen random on sunroof, wipers, windows, and blinkers. Scary car, especially if I were going down a hill with no control. 2 years later dealership could never resolve problem. Paid $17,000 and needs $3,200 in work. Not sure if I fix these problems the car will work properly. Stressful car and dangerous.

I was turning left at a duel left turn lanes, I was on the out side, as I turned and accelerated to 35 the big red truck on the inside lane came into my lane of travel. As I saw this big red truck going across my hood I tried to stop and down shift when the left front tire skidded and the car jerked to the left and the car and truck met.
