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.

Last Saturday my power window master switch melted in the middle of the night. I woke up Sunday morning with a smoky smell in my car. I took it to GMC to do a diagnostics test on it and they determined it was in fact the master power window switch. They told me that the component melted in the middle of the night.
