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.

1998 Isuzu Hombre 4X4, 5spd, 4.3 liter there are multiple ares that need to be addressed. 1. the parking brake does not keep the vehicle from rolling backwards on even the smallest hills. 2. the passengers seat will not latch after it has been pushed forward then back into position. It must be slammed to get it to latch 3. the cooling system is inadequate. On hot days with ac on it will overheat while going up hills or going off road.
