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.

Consumer is not satisfied about how recall repair (01V126000) was handled, he heard the recall information on the news, but just to confirm that he had heard correctly he contacted his dealership but was told they knew nothing of a recall so consumer continued to drive vehicle that same day, the next day consumer received a call from dealership about the recall and advised consumer to not drive vehicle and the vehicle would be towed in and a rental car would be supplied at no charge to the consumer, however consumer states he was inconvenienced due to the fact dealership kept his vehicle for over 3 weeks.
