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.

in the midst of another issue where i was required to remove my fuel tank, i noticed my brake lines were rusted incredibly. not having the resources to replace or repair brake systems i loaded the truck on my uncles flatbed and drove it a mile and a half down the street to the local mechanics. they informed me that had i driven it down to the shop, a mere mile and a half involving only 3 stops, they surely would have popped leaving me without a brake system. they were so brittle you could snap the lines with just your index finger and thumb. i had mine replaced with ones that resisted rust caused by water, fuel and salt exposure to prevent this from happening again. but just a reminder to drivers everywhere, should your brakes go out, shift into a low gear and use engine compression to slow down, in cases were you must slow down fast, side swipe a curb and saccrifice your tires or rim finish. theyre worth alot less than your life.
