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 have a 2002 Chevy Tracker that has displayed a catastrophic failure of the front crossmember. This is as described in the closed investigation NHTSA action number: EA06018. The failure occurred at highway speed when braking and I was very lucky to maintain control of the vehicle. This is a very serious safety issue.
