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.

I've no idea if the light is going to go off at some point...or my truck is about to RIP??? I've checked all the fluids in the truck and twiddled the gas cap all different ways, the light stays on. It's been on since last week but the truck drives just fine. If this is just a way for unseen vehicle designers to get the last laugh...NOT FUNNY!

cars and computers are not the best thing (IMO). How much money does one have to spend to be told "we can't find anything wrong" and yet, the lights keep coming on, the chiming happens... What the hey nonny nonny hey? How hot does the dome light cover and bulbs have to get before something scorches (other than my poor blistered finger)?
