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.

After taking my car to get smogged and it failed, I was told there was a leak in my power steering hose. Within one day my car was undriveable. Now I have had to order a part that was only placed in the 2001 Ford Focus and costs $150. I am lucky that my father is going to install it for me and I won't have to pay the installation for it. But in the meantime I am without a vehicle.
