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.

While in motion, the heat shield that covers the catalytic converter fell off, the four bolts that hold the sheild in place had corroded. The dealer refused to replace it because of the mileage. Consumer explains that when the vehicle was refused service it was well within the waranty period. Consumer feels this is a dangerous situation because a fire could develop due to defective materials.
