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.

Me car was purchased used 1/16/03, since purchase, have had several serious problems; idler pulley warped, broke power steering belt while on road cooling fan motor went out on passenger side of car -the engine in my 1998 Dodge Intrepid blew -up when I was on the expressway in a construction zone (one lane of traffic). I was told by several local auto mechanics and Dodge dealerships that these engines are notorious for this problem. The power steering and braking quit when engine quit. Car diagnosed by local mechanic " needs engine replaced".
