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.

2008 Hyundai Accent. Consumer writes in regards to vehicle brake light switch recall notice. The consumer stated after waiting for an hour at the dealer, to have the recall performed, the dealer informed him, the recall work had been completed. However due to an issue separate from the recall, the brake lights still did not work. The dealer wanted $99 to diagnose the problem, and if it was simply the light bulbs were burned out there would be an additional 4140 for the light bulbs. The consumer and the service advisor went out to the vehicle, and when the advisor stepped on the brake pedal, the brake lights illuminated.
