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.

1998 GMC S15 Jimmy truck, defective encoder motor. On 3 separate occasions during snow storms the consumer had to rely on the 2-wheel drive to navigate on the roads covered in snow and ice without the benefit of the added traction of 4-wheel drive. Once the consumer was unable to shift from 4-wheel drive back to 2-wheel drive. This past winter, the consumer lost traction and skidded out of control. The dealer replaced the wheel cover.
