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 was getting off the highway after traveling approx 10 miles @ 70-80 mph. As I slowed the vehicle and moved onto the on ramp at approx 55 mph encountered a slight bump due to road surface change and my vehicle's hood suddenly released. Luckily the hood latch caught the hood and prevented it from slamming up to the windshield but it was a very unsettling moment and I am afraid that it may happen again. There was no reason the hood should have released. This could have been deadly if it had happened at a higher rate of speed where the latch could have also failed.
