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.

I own a 3 month old Honda S2000 that has a defective engine that Honda refuses to fix. I was told that I may have abused the car and Honda would cover part of the repair. I was doing research of the internet and found many of these limited production cars with defective engines and most owners have been challenged and asked to pay some or all of the repair bill. Several of the owners and myself are having to hire attorneys to try to make Honda fix these cars and rent cars in the mean time. Honda will not discuss or return calls with any of us. Honda has told eachof us that the decision is final! I can provide names of others if needed
