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.

Let's see, not to rant and rave but, come on, 100 years, people, by now we should be well above this. Just look around, the only industry that has literally gone nowhere is the auto industry. Yeah, yeah, go ahead blame the government, remember that is US, WE ARE the BUYERS. If we DON'T DEMAND BETTER THAN WE Will never get any better. WE ARE THE PROBLEM. I know, no one remembers their weekly readers and what the projection for 2010 cars would look like? Well, do they look like what they should be? NO, WE JUST NOW TAUGHT OUR CAR HOW TO PARK ITSELF. WOW. Are WE not the Captain's of our own destinies?

So I bought a Japaneses auto thinking they would rather die hari kari than make a bad automobile, no surprise, another piece of automotive crap. Well Maybe the Arabs will make the first automobile that runs on alternate fuels, and fuel cells, and can fly, after all, they are the only real winners so far......
