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.

During an awful storm I went to go to leave in my vehicle but the key would not turn in the ignition. It was of course a below freezing day when this happened and of course also had to get my daughter from preschool. I really don't understand how this could happen so suddenly, it was working just fine a few days previous to this incident. I just wonder if it is the ignition itself or if it is the ignition coal. very confused
