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.

My car was in need of a smog test in order to be registered. i bought the car for $2,000. i had bought it from this nice lady (first owner) who had done a very good job keeping the car well mechanically maintained but when i bought it from her. she said that it i had to get it smogged and that whatever the cost it was under my responsibility. i agreed with her, but i didnt think that the problem was devastating. when i took the car in the smog shop they told me that a worn out catalytic converter was restricting the air flow and that it had to be replaced. they send me to a muffler shop to get it replaced which i did ($300 worth). then i brought it back and didn't pass again. i replaced the 02 sensors and still didnt pass. i took it back to the muffler shop and they told me it had 2 converters. a DTC code appeared stating that the front converter had to be replaced as well. i havent replaced it due to the reason that this converter cost $1,500 and can ONLY be obtained from the dealership. if i should of known that this car was going to give me lots of problems in less than a month since i bought the car i wouldnt of bought it NEVER!!!
