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.

Compared to everything else this is minor. When combined with all the other problems however it is frustrating. I'll leave you with this, I will NEVER buy an American car or truck EVER again. As an American Consumer, I deserve the very best. I will only buy the very best from now on. This will only include Toyota's, Honda's, Nissan's, period. In addition, I would strongly suggest that never, under any circumstances should anyone buy a vehicle from Go Chrysler Jeep, on south Broadway in Englewood, Colorado. Their staff is comprised of thieves and cheats. I can still hear the finance officer telling me to ENJOY my 1999 Dodge. Considering all the trouble I've had with this truck, when does the enjoyment start?!
