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.

GOING FROM TEXAS TO ALASKA. GOING ACROSS WY. STOP FOR GAS, NO PROBLEMS. LEFT GAS STATION AND THE TRUCK WOULD NOT SHIFT OUT OF 1ST GEAR. DROVE FOR 87 MILES TO NEXT TOWN TO FIND A FORD DEALER, TRUCK WAS STILL UNDER EXTEND FORD WARRANTY BUT THEY REFUSED TO PAY FOR THE TRANS. SAID IT WAS A NORMAL WEAR ITEM!! HAD TO LIVE IN A MOTEL FOR 10 DAYS WHILE THE FORD DEALER TRIED TO FIND A TRANS. THAT WOULD WORK IN MY TRUCK. WILL NEVER BUY A FORD OR GM AUTO AGAIN, GIVE ME A HONDA OR EVEN A KIA!!
