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.

To whom it may concern. My name is conrad duval and am employed at auburn metal fabrication as a shop supervisor.the company recently purchased this new vehicle which I use to go back and forth to work.well to get to the matter at hand the air bag light was staying on so we brought it in for service.a small mouse or rodent found a way into the fuse box and nauyed all the wiring and made a nest.I would think this compartment should be made less accessible to a mouse.damage is estimated at 2 to 3 thousand $ something is not right here.whats to say this won't happen again after its repaired.I would think this would not be safe if it wen't undetected.
