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.

The paint job is in pretty good shape on the majority of the car, with exception of the area right around the gas tank. Another woman approached me in the parking lot and told me that her 1997 Malibu had the same thing and that once it started it progressed rapidly to an ugly cancer on her car. Mine has progressed fairly quickly and I think I will get it repaired before it becomes an ugly cancer.
