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 was just getting onto the street and was just maybe going 10-15mph, when the vehicle traction control and stability control and ABS lights came on and increased acceleration and pulled to one side when the dash lights mentioned came on. Also sounded like brakes were being applied at same time. I was barely able to make it to dealer without being in am accident. The clockspring had to be replaced.
