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.

The Honda dealer has taken great care of my car until this event. I was in a parking lot, backed up and barely hit a pole with the rear bumper. Then I put it in drive, and the car took off at full speed out of control, burning rubber, even though I was hitting the brakes, pumping them, trying to stop. I only had time to swerve to avoid a parked car, then went into a brick wall and the car was totaled. The air bags went off. The mph is an approximation based on the cars damage since I could not look at the odometer under these emergency circumstances. I was only slightly injured, but I will have to see a chiropractor.
