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. Notes: Chrysler has taken the boring small car frame of the Neon, grafted a 1930s-era roadster body on top and named it the PT Cruiser. While the new look may appeal to some, the vehicle has unfortunately also inherited many of the same problems as the Neon.

Here we are driving this car without RKE fob working, using key to arm them when parked. No horn, door locks reverberating whenever. I had to plug in the horn fuse to go thru inspection. Thank God it only honked when the horn button was pushed. After leaving the inspection station it did its "honk-honk" I just waved and stopped about one mile away and pulled out the fuse again. NO HORN! Not safe nor good!
