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.

When traveling merging on I-70 outside of london Ohio my truck started making very loud exhaust sound. After inspection found that driver side and passenger side rear exhaust manifold bolts where broke off allowing unfiltered exhaust to pass. If leak would have been too bad the high temperature of the exhaust could potentially cause a fire inside the engine compartment. The exhaust also broke welds off the exhaust causing the exhaust to fall the break is where the H-pipe come together.
