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.

At about 175,000 miles I started having problem getting the key into the ignition. The problem got worse and worse until it stopped working. Called the dealer for a quote. Said I needed a new ignition and new key. Total cost around $500. Decided to take my luck with a locksmith franchise -- Pop-A-Lock. They said it would be $225 for a repair, and $275 if they had to replace it. It is now day 3 without a car, and it's still not working. Repair didn't work. (This is clearly a very complex job.) Yesterday they replaced the entire ignition, but don't have the right equipment to program the key. Now on day 3 waiting for another repair guy with a newer programming machine to finish the job.
