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.

Electronic stability control. While driving home from my family christmas party, I turned a small corner at 15 mph and my breaks locked up. The vehicle will not go over 20mph now. It happened 4 times to me yesterday. 4 times. Each time I was shoved forward, and lost momentary control of the vehicle almost hitting a curb. It happened 3 more times on the road. Each time with cars near me. This is a huge safety issue when there are kids in the vehicle. I do not have a thousand or more to put into my car right now. Nor can I risk my life for a vehicle that I love.

The electric cords in my car has been bitten by rodents for 5-6 times in the past year. Every time my car could be started or the warning lights are on. My car is parked in open parking lot. But this kind of problems just happened to my car, not my neighbors'. and it also happened to my friends who have the same model. I believe there are designing problems which are very dangerous.
