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 a 2001 Explorer Sport Trac with 60K miles on it. The stock shocks are so bad that breaking and highway travel is dangerous. The last incident occurred while driving I-35 South right outside of Kansas City, mo. A car broke down in my line and I tapped (not stomped) the brakes to slow down, the truck did a nose dive and the back end kicked out into the other lane and the tires locked up.
