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.

Both fenders started rusting. Once it started rusting, it just got worse and faster. So fast, after a year about a quarter of the fender was rusted with paint falling off. The other fender is rusting but not as quick. Rust just behind the rear wheels on both sides as well. There shouldn't be that much rust on a car that's barely 7 years old.
