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.

Here we are again and I know what some of you are thinking..... "With 178000 miles, why the hell doesnt he get rid of it??" Well folks, my company seems to have an unlimited supply of funds to keep this piece of crap on the road. This time the front diff went out on me up in the mountains on the way to a remote microwave site in 3 inches of snow on a steep incline. 4wd would have been great but I had to slide all over in 2wd to get there. I gimped this pile of s--t home and the garage has it. I think this is the last piece of the drivetrain that hasnt been replaced, so it stands to reason it went out.
