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.

I can't say what I like to say. This car has and has had more problems that I can keep track of. Not to mention all the recalls. Sometimes I wish I could just get my money back. I know as long as I keep it I will have to keep putting money into it. I don't mind when I'm driving it by myself to and from work I'll put up with the sh*. It really pi* me off the I can trust it to drive it on the hywy I feel like the motor will fall out. I guess I'll just have to be thankfull for the littles things.
