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 only have 25,000 miles on my 2001 Dodge Grand Caravan. (1) the sway bar links were repaired twice, and parts are on back order for a third repair. (2) I had to replace the front brakes after only 14,000 miles, and they are half gone already at 25,000 miles, plus the rear brakes have to be replaced. (3) the engine has a flat spot during acceleration, and I get about 11 miles per gallon in the city, and about 15-16 miles per gallon on the highway. It stated it got 18 miles per gallon in the city, and 24 miles per gallon on the highway. (4) the transmission makes a moaning sound; the power steering was leaking fluid, (5) I had to replace the battery the first summer I had it, the anti lock brakes went out early this summer (6) the driver?S side window would not roll up when we were at bear country usa surrounded by bears (7) the shift gear lever sometimes slips from drive to neutral, and I have had that looked at twice (8) the cruise control went out last summer
