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.

Anti theft system that is installed in my car keeps going out. When it does go out my car will not tart and I have to have it towed to the dealer ship to have it either replaced or reprogrammed. I just had it in the shop on 2-27-04 and they so called reprogrammed it and now on 3-1-04 I went to the store at 7 pm come back out to go hpme and my car will not crank. It has to go back to the dealer ship to be servoced again. This is the 3rd time that this has happened to me. In this car. No one can seem to fix the problem with out it happening again.
