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.

My car will not start. I went to leave a friends house and when I put the key in the ignition and tried to start it the lights were blinking on and off, all of the gauges were going crazy, and the radio turned on and off. Thats it, it did nothing more. We tried to jump it. but knew it wasn't the battery because the lights and gagues were not dim. I have no idea what is wrong. I really need my car because I work two jobs and have no other way of getting there
