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 was driving out of town on Thanksgiving day. I was about 20 miles from my destination when my RPM'S and speedometer started going crazy. My speedometer was sticking and was stuck at 35 MPH. I shut my car off and it finally went down to 0. I started my car up again and it was still having issues, but it seemed like it was reading closer to what the actual speed I was traveling.

I let the vehicle overnight and in the morning I started my vehicle again. It seemed like the problem corrected itself UNTIL Sunday when I was driving back home. I was about 125 miles from my destination when my vehicle started reading 90 m.p.h. and my RPM'S were to the point that my engine should have blown, but my engine was not revving. My speedometer was stuck at 120 M.P.H. and did not come off that mark. Try to find someone on a Sunday to fix a vehicle. GOOD LUCK WITH THAT! So I ended up trying to find a slower driver to follow for the rest of the 125 mile trip without getting a ticket. Let me tell you there were a lot of state patrol out being a holiday weekend.
