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.

Although not apparent on new labels, the composition is plastic covering over printed base, with the base having the necessary adhessive to affix to the master cylinder reservoir. While using a clean, dry cloth to clean up around the engine compartment, I wiped over the labels and the plastic outer covering slid, smearing the printed information and making the english label illegible. The brake warning statement is still entirely visible, but only the french version print is legible, since I did not rub over it. At the time, the engine compartment was warm, since the engine had been running.
