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.

Takata recall. I contacted General Motors as well as a local GM dealer and neither were able to provide me any info on the status of the recall. It has been 18 month since I was notified about the problem. General Motors seems to be dragging their feet and I want results. I ask for a temporary vehicle to drive until mine was repaired but was denied by GM.
