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 purchased a new 05 Ford Ranger on September 12 of this year. After driving the vehicle I experience headaches and some hearing problems. I believe this is caused by this vehicle. When I did not use it for a few days this went away. Now that I am using the vehicle again these have returned. I don't know if this is your area, but it might have some importance.
