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.

My 2004 Ford F-150 caught fire at 5:30am in the morning while sitting in my drive way. The fire ended up consuming the entire vehicle and then jumped to the house. The vehicle was totaled and total damage to the house was in excess of $30,000. The fire seemed to start near the rear of the vehicle. The fire department investingation resulted in an inconclusive reason for the fire. They could not find any evidence for what would have started the fire.
