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.

Dt the vehicle caught on fire. The fire department came and extinguished the fire. The fire department claimed it was the electrical system up under the dash. This happened on September 26, 2005. Smelled something burning while driving on the highway, but in this area it could smell like that at certain times. The vehicle had been sitting for an hour and fifteen minutes before the fire. There was no for earning and no noise. Contacted the dealer, they said they could not help us.
