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.

Bought the car second hand from Lloyds TSB with a 12 months warrenty for parts and labour. Car was supposed to be fit for the road. First time it rained in came the water, took it back , they could not find a problem. Same thing happened when it rained again, this time took it to a Ford Dealer, nearer home, they replaced the pollen filter seal which had been incorrectly fitted. Water still getting in, took it back to the same dealer, this time they took out the Front Windscreen and replaced the rubber seal, problem solved. Cost to me just over $150, cost to Lloyds TSB, yet to be determined.
