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.

Anyone who owns this vehicle may want to look at the cable that holds the spare tire under the vehicle. The part at the end of the cable rusted out and my spare tire fell off just as I was getting off the highway. This could have caused a bad accident if it fell off while I was on the highway.
