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.

Takata recall. I have to drive four kids every day for my job. It's a huge liability and I cannot work with my car in the condition it is in right now. Lexus dealerships have the same problem as mine and are giving free rentals until the problem is fixed. I am hoping to see if I am able to qualify for a free rental so I can continue to work until parts become available for my car.
