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.

2002 Isuzu Axiom. 85K miles. Same frame as Isuzu rodeo/Honda passport driving down the highway the road car started to grind. Upon pulling over I discovered that the drivers-side rear traction bar had completely rusted off the frame. The frame was so rusted that I don't know if there will be anyway to repair the car into functional operation.
