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.

Takata recall. Expecting me to drive a vehicle where if I do happen to get in a crash, when the air bags deploy, instead of saving my passengers life as it should, the airbag can disperse metal fragments killing passengers in my car. You should be recalling entire vehicles based on this danger and replacing vehicles.
