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.

We were driving approximately 45 mph when the hood suddenly flew up and smashed into the windshield. We were able to maneuver the truck to the shoulder without there being an accident. The hood was bent and had to be replaced, hood mounts had to be straightened. A new hood latch was installed as the mechanic said this was the problem that it was stuck open, and in his opinion, defective.
