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.

1200 repair yay I love my truck! Front end started making a grinding noise so I brought it to my mechanic. Turns out it was my transfer case. To tear it apart and find out whats wrong with it costs about as much a just buying a rebuild and putting that in so I went with the rebuild. less time and energy wasted. Besides my mechanic said mine looked like it had been torn apart before.
