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.

10 year old girl attempted to enter rear passenger sliding (non-automatic) door of 2001 Chevy Venture, when the bolts and tracking failed causing the door to fall to the ground cutting her bone in her big toe in half, leaving it hanging on by skin. Doctor's at children's hospital had to realign the bone and reattach her toe. General Motors has been notified, but at this time, they are not willing to fix or replace the defective vehicle.
