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.

Red sticker copy of disappointment that NHTSA did not return his call. The consumer stated the spare tire cable failed, which caused the tire to fall onto the road and subsequently, the tire bounced high into the air and crashed onto the roof of another vehicle. The consumer stated after the part was replaced, it failed again one year later.
