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.

Just another problem again............making noises in the engine compartment to take in for something else and this came up, the bill for all the repairs that day was worth more than the car is on the open market

Taurus SE 3.0L V6

After having the broken serpentine belt replaced just the day before, I was on my way home from work- the day before Thanksgiving. Made a short stop and when I started my car, and put the car in reverse to back out of the parking spot, there was a klunk, my dashboard battery light came on, and power steering was gone again. Another serpentine snapped on my car - 2 days in a row. It was poring down rain, the pay phone I found didn't work, just took my money. Had to wait forever for a tow truck to tow me home. Now, what do I do? Something other than a broken serpentine belt .....what would make it all of a sudden snap twice?
