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 daughter was driving West on I-64 near evansville, in when the top half of the hood separated from the bottom and flew off of the car. Body shop and ins. Said that it was a defected hood, it looks as if the front section was never sealed properly. This could have been dangerous if the hood had not blown up and away from the car.
