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 have owned my 2007 Ford Taurus for approx. 4 years, and each winter I've had to have the throttle body replaced. Every winter the accelerator tends to become sticky. Luckily I purchased an extended warranty on this car. I have had to use it on several occasions.
