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 problem I have had is that the ABS controls and valves are mounted under the battery and acid has eaten the brake lines and ABS valves. Luckily it failed in the parking lot and not on the road my 16 year old daughter was driving with my wife at the time of the failure. This could have been a deadly scenario!
