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 bought a brand new 2001 Dodge Caravan SE and had engine & electrical problems. Just a few months later, while driving over the bridge out of New York city, the car filled up with white smoke of a really toxic smell. Greenish brown fluid leaked out at my feet. Several times I went to have it fixed, all the fluids would leak out of the bottom of the car, I would take it back to only have it happen again. Finally they clamped a hose underneath the car causing fluids to swish back and forth in the dash area shorting out the electrical system and my lights would flash on and off. (very dangerous vehicle with children). Went through the lemon law unit with a judge that did not usually work in that court, and lost the case after paying a lawyer $2000. That went out on disability! I had no justice and stopped paying on the car. It was repossesed and someone else is probably driving around with this car!
