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.

S-10 Pickup 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

Rear brake light burned out. Replaced and new one burned out within 1 week. Replaced and again it burned out. Went to dealer, and was charged >$30 to replace the bulb. Then it burned out and I took it back and they replaced a part, and didn't charge me for the labor because of the $30. Bulb still burned out. Didn't replace for over a year and then I replaced it and it burned out. Just recently replaced it again and it has been working for about 4 months.
