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.

Driving to work this morning on the interstate at 75 mph, with no indication or warning my 2002 chystler PT CRUISER completely shut down, steering wheel locked up. After I pulled over on the side of the road the car would no longer turn over or act like it wanted to start up. I then have the car towed to a mechanic shop near my home and was informed today my fuel pump went out.

Recall on fuel pump module never disclosed by dealer! recently had service to my car at a Dodge-Chrysler dealer in atlanta, ga and they never disclosed that I had a recall part on my car. My fuel pump module needs a secondary seal placed over it so it won't leak if a roll-over accident occurs. Took car to a second Chrysler dealer, and they too never disclosed my recall fuel pump module needs repairs. This problem could result in a serious and fatal accident. Something must be done about these dealers not informing unsuspecting customers of something so serious.
