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.

A D V E R T I S E M E N T S

Came out from a Movie Theater and My car was parked near the Front Door Entrance and was facing the theater. as I approached my Vehicle with My Relatives with me (All Females ranging in age of 33-56). I noticed alot of Metal exposed from the front end of my Car and I blurted out that my car did'nt look right. as we were getting closer my Aunt thought they had stolen my bumper and as we got up closer my Mother told me to pop the hood so we could see what that metal was. being all females we don't know that much about cars and that's when my Mom said looks like your Motor fell down?...I said WTFrench!...and I started gaging and throwing up my Nervous stomach kicked in....Wrecker Service came out within 20 minutes and we had a hardtime loading a car on a flatbed that had half the Motor hanging out...after I had to pay out of pocket first before they would come out and hall me off....needless to say, the next day I had a mechanic come to the place where I had parked my Car (My Car's not driveable) so, they checked it out and said that it was the bushings or sub frame...So, Now I am gonna have to call a junkyard and find a desent one if Impala Chevrolet house has a reasonable priced one I will purchase it from them. So, I'm out of a car and no way to get around...I was gonna go frocery shopping after going to a show...I'm outta Bread and milk and I'm hungry, nervous and frustrated!!!

All I want to know is how did that happen? what could have caused that! needless to say when trying to help the wrecker driver load up the car. he asked us to turn the steering wheel and it was going all the way around...it was loose....and we freaked out...so now that maybe another problem I may have to get checked out! My car it had to get put up on wheel casters with small jacks to manuever the car in position to load up on the Flat bed... there was not enough space in between of 2 cars where I was parked at and the cars in the parking spaces behind me so that's why we had to go thru this procedure of using the casters to wheel me out! as the car was being towed the car was leaving marks embedded to the cemented parking lot....that was freaking scary I must say!!! and also that was a first for that wrecker driver to have loaded a car who's Motor was hanging out!!!

I'm freaking LIVID!!!!...heck, I use to own a 2002 Impala and till it was totaled out in a car Accident not cause of my Careless ...But, I do remember experiencing alot of Problems with that car that I use to have! Where were you (AutoBeef.com) when I was having all these problems? Well, I'm Glad for this site thank you though I will spread the word!!!
