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 see that many people have complained about their 2001 Chevy Mailbus and have not had a lot of luck. I also had to spend the money on the head gasket which I thought was a lot of money at the time. However, I recently took my car to the dealership after noticing a noise and then the steering being limited. I was told my craddle and steering rack had rusted out and needed replaced. I had planned on keeping the car as a first time car for my 16 year old because the car has been good to me. However, I can't believe that GM uses such thin metal for the car's subframe. I faithfully take my car to an under carriage wash all winter to ensure I have limited rusting. This is extremely disappointing and I will be looking to get rid of the car before more goes wrong...Toyota is looking better and better.
