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.

Consumer had taken vehicle to mechanic for an oil change, and mechanic found out that anti-freez was leaking from head gasket. Then, took vehicle to dealer to be repaired, and drove home finding out that dealer did not put fluid in transmission, and had to return for repairs. Consumer states that dealer did not perform all repairs, only fixed head gasket, did not properly re-clamp fuel line.
