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.

I bought this vehicle used with approx. 23,000 miles on it. About 6 weeks after purchase, I went to leave for work and the car would not start. It was towed to the dealer half way around the city to have it fixed. NOT a good impression!!! At 68,000 miles it's about time to get rid of what I consider an unreliable vehicle. With the other problems I've had with this car, I can't count on it.
