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.

  • Automatic transmission
  • 65,500 miles
No prior warnings or conditions existed prior to failure. The vehicle would not start and it was diagnosed by a fellow coworker to be the fuel pump. Aaa was called to tow the vehicle, and upon arrival, put car in neutral to back it up in order to tow. Immediately, the front driver tire when flat, and it was a result of the front strut assembly breaking and causing the coil spring to snap and pierce the front tire. It has been 6 days, and I was still without the vehicle which was only 3 1/2 years old with 65,000 miles. I was told that nothing was covered by warranty and replacement parts were not available. In order to get the vehicle fixed quickly I had to accept parts from a 2006 vehicle.
