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 just had the car serviced at a Chrysler Dealership. We tried to go and visit my Aunt about 125 miles away and the car quit! It left a puddle of trans. fluid under car. We called Family to come and get us. The next day I had to hire a rollback to go and bring my car back to the Dealer. It sat there for about 3 days or so without being touched! So I had it brought back to my house and dropped in the driveway. Now I am stuck without a car! I would like to warn people about dealing with this Dealership! The name is Providence Auto, Quarryville, Pa.
