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.

Vehicle was parked on a slight downhill grade, gear selector in park, with the engine running. After a period of time less than 5 minutes, the vehicle came out of park on its own and began to roll forward, crashing through a fence, small trees and shrubs, then down an enbankment. The vehicle sustained severe damage and is probably a total loss.
