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 consumer purchased the vehicle already inspected by the dealer. A few days later the consumer took the vehicle to a local meineke because of a squeaking noise. The vehicle was checked and the consumer was told that the vehicle should have never passed inspection due to numerous problems found with the vehicle. The meineke tech stated that eh vehicle should not have passed inspect due to numerous violations. The vehicle needs 2 wheel bearings, track bar, steering shock, 2 hub assemblies, brake lines, oxygen sensor and a new license plate bulb. The consumer contacted the dealer to get his money back but they refused.
