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 contact owns a 2001 Ford Taurus. While driving 35 mph the driver's side coil spring failed. The mechanic replaced both coil springs, a damaged cv joint, a failed connector rod, and a damaged strut. The contact never received a safety recall notice, and didn't know if the repairs were performed with the previous owner per recall# 04V332000. The contact had the front brake pads repaired. The current and failure mileages were 120,000.
