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.

Everyday I have to jump start my ice cream truck. It will work until I bring it home for the night and park it. When I go to use the bus the next day again the battery is completely dead. I have spent over $500 and it still doesn't work. I was told by mechanics they don't know the source of the problem.The air doesn't work either. It was a mini-school bus that I purchased and turned it into an Italian Ice and Ice Cream Bus. I spent a lot of money getting it ready for that..Please help!!
