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.

Mega fuse after purchasing my vehicle, I started having electrical problems with the instruments and headlights going haywire. I had to pull over and when I put my truck in park the engine would die. I would have to pull on the negative battery cable to fix the problem. After changing out the factory mega fuse the issue went away. Ball bearing issue: The ball bearing on the front driver side has gone out twice in over a one year period. I use my vehicle for normal transportation work/home. I am having to have the bearing changed again. This is a safety issue.
