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.

I have never had so many issues in my life as I have with this stupid 1998 Ford Escort. First it was the cooling system, now this. The car ran fine the night before then go figure I try to start it to head to work and it won't start. I really have no idea what It could be. The starter, alternator, and battery is fine.
