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.

The dealership providing wrong information regarding the consumer having the floor shift ignition park interlock recall 04V021000 performed. The first time the appointment was made the dealership indicated that they have to order the parts to perform the recall. The second time the appointment was made they indicated they could not perform the recall because the vehicle had a salvage title although the vehicle was deemed road worthy by the state.
