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.

CAR STARTED WITH OIL LIGHT COMING ON. THOUGHT THAT OIL LIGHT INDICATED LOW OIL NOT THAT ENGINE WAS COMPLETELY DRY AND THERE WAS NO OIL IN CAR. ANYWAY: OIL PAN UNDERNEATH CAR WAS LEAKING OIL & ENGINE LIGHT CAME ON WHEN ENGINE WAS COMPLETELY OUT OF OIL. TIMING BELT BROKE, ENGINE SEIZED UP. PAID FOR REBUILT ENGINE, TOWING, ETC. NO WONDER PEOPLE DO NOT BUY AMERICAN MADE CARS ANYMORE. I WILL NEVER BUY AMERICAN AGAIN.
