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.

On 6/18/04 my family was in a rollover accident while on vacation in NY. My son was driving and swerved to avoid a car coming at high speeds. The steering became very loose and we rolled over. Before rolling over, he tried to regain control and totttled left then tottled right and then flipped and landed on the hood. The three with minor injuries included cuts on hands from cladd, sprain neck and bruises.
