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 2001 Chevy Venture without power doors. A 10 year old child attempted to open the rear passenger side sliding door, when it completely came off of the tracks, pulling the brackets out of the vehicles roof. The door fell on the childs left foot, cutting off her big toe. Children's hospial had to reattach the bone where it was split in two and then reattach her toe.
