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.

Our 1997 Lumina showed NO signs of giving out, but he did. We were told that the cam shaft went out, but it is not worth it, so we are getting a new car. He was a good car, though: went through a flood, severe hail, high winds, ect. Up to the end, the Lumina ran fine.
