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.

  • 15,000 miles
I made a trip to California and right before I left I had the oils changed on my truck. My truck had about 15,000 miles on it. The trip was 1,000 miles round trip and it used 2 1/2 quarts of oil. I took it to the dealer and was told that it was normal to use that much oil. And they changed the oil to a different weight to do a test on oil consumption. It still uses oil and now the motor smokes when you first start it up. And if it sits for a couple of days it will know loud when you start it. The for D dealer said this is normal.
