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.

four wheel drive quit working while driving on backcountry road in the snow. the mechanic had to replace the entire rear axle as the rear differential is not independent of the axle. I was lucky he was able to find a good one at the salvage yard, which significantly lowered the repair cost.
