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.

Due to the design of the velcro tape console overhead compartment, on a hot day the velcro tape loses its stick and the garage door oper ends up resting on the push-rod, the the garage door spontaneously opens and closes because the garage door button is resting on the push-rod. Resulting the garage door come crashing down on my child and another time on my car.
