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.

Ford sport ka has produced a commercial showing a cat being decapitated as itshead is looking into the vehicle via the power sun roof. As the sunroof closes the cat's head is severed. This commercial while meant to be humorous only to Ford clearly demonstrates the clear danger of serious injury and death to pets and children. I formally request that this commercial be scene and reviewed as a demonstration by Ford that it's sunroofs on this vehicle and possibly other Ford vehicles is inherantly unsafe to children but not providing a resistance mechanism that would retract the moving roof when met with resistance e.g. a childs head or body part.
