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.

Ready to beat GM manufacturers. Found out that there was a class action law suit against GM's dex-cool (coolant). Apparently the coolant acts like a detergant and strips the lines of the cooling system. Picked van up and drove about 25 miles and vehicle started running hot again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Then entire engine started shimming (as if it needed new plugs & wires) replaced those in Nov. of 07'.
