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.

My 2007 Ford Focus key is stuck in my ignition &its a security and safety hazard, Ford wants to charge 400-500 dollars to fix their own common problem. The consequence of this is I will probably stop stimulating the economy along with others and not buy an american made car. I refuse to correct a problem Ford will not correct for free so I am buying another car.
