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 was totally shocked and frustrated to come out from being in the grocery store over an hour to find that my key would turn in the ignition. I sat for over 45 minutes trying to get it to turn over. I had to get a neighbor to come and get me, unload all my groceries into her car, and pick up something for supper on the way home. I was there in the parking lot for over 2 hours. I had to have the car towed the next day to a mechanic. He remarked that he hadn't seen anything like that happen in all of his years. He worked over time on New Year's Eve so I could get my car back. I just wanted to find somewhere to report this issue and to see if anyone else has had this problem.
