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.

Contact complained about a fuel injection system problem. When the car came to a full stop the engine turned off. An independent mechanic advised the contact to take the car to the dealer, which she has not done. Additionally, the turning lights were not returning to the original position when used. She purchased the car from a family member. Therefore, she did not know the dealer's name.
