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.

In first complaint regarding suspension arm bolts was told this stuff happens, in regards to the water leakage in exhaust, was told that is normal. I feel it isn't normal when it is pouring down my driveway. They didn't fix the problem. Had tires rotated then got a flat tire and they cross threaded the lug nuts and the bolt had to be broken off to repair the flat tire.
