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.

The car was taken to a dealership to have the subframe mounts replaced and they discovered the problem, called me and told me it cost more to fix than the car is worth and that I should trade it in for a new car. I have owned this car since 1997 and have taken very good care of it. Except for this problem the car is in very good condition. I was able to get a shop that does restorations to repair the rust.
