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.

Driving along on turnpike, slight miss fire of engine, misfire light came on. Drove car to local Chevrolet, lucky I didn't drop a rod. Rocker arm part clearly showed metal fatigue, should not have happened. Car not abused, serviced regularly, etc. No help from local dealer; they said they already helped me with intake gasket failure. No help from Chevrolet; they said it was up to the dealer. No wonder the big 3 is in trouble.
