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.

Daughter was driving call and steering suddenly seemed "funny". pulled over, had car towed and was told the mounting bracket for the rear driver side sway bar rusted from the mainframe of the car and the car cannot be driven. Researched on web and Isuzu had a recall on this issue. Called Honda and they suggested we tow the car over 110 miles to the nearest dealership. If at that time they inspected it and determine Isuzu is at fault the may or may not offer any compensation. I feel it is unreasonable to require me to tow the car 110 miles. I examined receipts from the previous owner and Isuzu issued a recall on this car. The car was inspected on 11/10/11 and this was typed on the receipt: Cau inspect found stage 1. treat per recall. Complete operates as design. Labeled a stage 1 fix. Obviously, they did not fix the issue. Since Isuzu has recalled this car do I have any options" is there a class lawsuit against Isuzu"
