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.

Within the time span of about 6 or 7 months, I've had to replace the alternator. This could possibly be because of the stereo system I have in my car, but I thought it worth mentioning, since the first alternator I had to replace ended up dying while I was driving across the country--It is NOT fun to be stranded in the middle of Nebraska. Everything under the hood of this car seems to be extremely difficult to get to, with everything being so jam-packed together. Very frustrating if you're playing mechanic.
