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.

The contact owns a 1998 Chrysler Sebring. While driving approximately 5 mph, the contact noticed smoke escaping from under the hood of the vehicle. The contact pulled over and then noticed fluid leaking from under the vehicle. The vehicle was towed to an independent mechanic where the technicians stated that three of the freeze plugs needed to be replaced because they were extremely corroded. The mechanic stated that enough pressure had built up to cause all the liquids to release simultaneously. The vehicle was repaired. The approximate failure mileage was 129,939.
