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 have had 5 new transmission in 2.5 years. SIMPLY PUT, I BOUGHT CAR NEW, EVEN THO IT IS OUT OF WARRANTY DUE TO MILEAGE , IT IS INCONCEIVABLE TO HAVE TO HAVE 5 NEW TRANSMISSIONS. THERE IS A STATUTE IN TEXAS FOR CONSUMERS CALLED THE DECEPTIVE TRADE PRACTICES ACT THAT EXPRESSLY COVERS THESE SORT OF PROBLEMS. THE DEALERS AND CAR MANUFACTURERS CANNOT HIDE BEHIND THE EXPRESS WARRANTIES BECAUSE THIS STATUTE SAYS THE STATE OF TEXAS, STATES THAT THERE ARE CERTAIN IMPLIED WARRANTIES IN ADDITION TO THE EXPRESS WARRANTIES. THESE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OFFER A LOT OF POWER TO THE CONSUMER "IF THEY KNOW ABOUT THIS!!!"

(basically it says there is a reasonable expectation that a car should not have to have the transmission replaced 5 times. I filed a lawsuit 3 months ago.)
