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.

Really bad exhaust smell. Not eggs. Not your standard stink. Bad smell since 6 months after purchase in 2001. Keeps the following traffic way behind me. Had oxygen sensor checked many times. But I think its the cat. Converter. Everytime I take it in for service, I request a fix. Still not fixed. Service center can't dup problem, why? I smell it !! also flux gas gauge movement in park. Also no horn. Had fixed once in summer 2005, and 5 months later it doesn't work again. The fuse is fine. Could have used it the other day. :-(
