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.

2001 Ford Taurus 4 door sedan. There was a clunking noise when the consumer moved the gear shift selector from park to another gear position. The lock cylinder in the ignition was frozen, the radio was inoperative, and the door panels were removed to clean the window runs... the rear drum assembly was cracked and pitted.
