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.

Flipped the fog light switch, heard a pop, smelled smoke. Got out of the car and called 911 while getting the fire extinguisher. Police and Fire Dept. arrived in under 4 minutes, but the car was a bit melty from the fire wall rearward. The engine was fine afterward, but the windows all turned black and broke, the dashboard, steering wheel and center console melted and the upholstery looked like the inside of a dirty barbecue pit.
