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 received a recall notice on the wireless ignition node module, also called the fobic on 1 September 2014. Recall number P57 / NHTSA 14V-567. I also received a recall number R25 on the air bags. It has been 1 year and the dealer still can not get the parts. This is ridiculous. Absolutely inexcusable since this is a safety issue.
