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.

Five Hundred 6-cyl

As I was driving down 9E at approximately 3:20pm, I hit a pothole and popped my tire. I pulled over to the side of the road and after contacting my roadside assistance, I realized that there was 3 other vehicles that had been hit by the pothole as well. The police was notified and provided each driver with an accident report.
