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.

Ford Transit with was going down a straight four-lane highway at 65 miles per hour when without warning the flange on the drive shaft came apart. Driver heard what sounded like a small explosion. The brake lines were blown off, the fuel line was damaged, the drive shaft was broken, and a hole was blown into the transmission case. Driver had no brakes, the drive shaft was separated from the rear wheels, and transmission could not be down shifted. Engine remained on and she was able to steer. There was no traffic near her or around her at the time. Road was straight. Driver put hand on emergency brake incase some one pulled in front of her and coast two miles to a stop.
