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 was driving on the N.J. tpke. At highway speed. I accidentally hit the push button start button. The engine shut off and the dash said shift into park. I could not restart the car until I came to a stop, shifted into park, but my foot on the brake and pushed the button. You can't open the trunk without the transmission being in park, yet you can shut everything down just by accidentally touching this button. Not safe.
