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.

Water from under the car and into enginge during car wash and rain causes serpintine belt to fall off, rendering car without power steering and other functions. Driving on winding wet roads at slow speed is extremely hazardous if the belt falls off. Belt has been replaced and adjusted. Manufacturer recommends installing a new engine mount bracket, but refuses to pay for it.
