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.

I am a sixteen year old male. I bought this car for myself with a little help from my parents. It was my dream car, it had leather, power seats, power windows and locks, and all the other fancy things my family had never had before. We drove four hours in the middle of the night to go and get it. I was so excited. After we brought it home, we discovered the high beams did not work. I let that one go because we only paid half of what it was worth. Then the window in the lift-gate's hydraulics went out. I painted a stick to hold it up and moved on. The next week, the lock on the lift-gate stopped working. I now have to crawl through the back and lock/unlock it manually through the emergency lock/unlock to unlock the lift-gate. After a few days, the radio went in and out. All you could hear was static at times and then it was clear as day. We recently found out it is the antenna. And now I reach the climax of my tale of woes, the brakes. I was driving to get dinner to celebrate living through an awful day, and my Jeep started pulling to the right and it felt like a tire had popped. I pulled over and checked the engine and tires and it all seemed fine. I went on my merry way and picked up dinner, enduring the pull and bumpiness for the rest of my journey. I pulled over again and smelled a burning smell. Then the brakes came into my mind and I rushed to the garage. I knew I had to hurry when I reached 4000 RPM going 45mph. When I got out at the mechanic's I saw that my brakes were on fire. I turned off the car and put out the fire with my fast food drink. We had to keep putting water on it because the rim and wheel well were burning hot. As soon as we put the water on there, it turned to steam. This car is a piece of junk. I despise it. It is my one true nemesis. I find myself wishing it would just quit. But then I remember I can't afford anything else and take that wish back. I encourage everyone to avoid this car at all costs. It very well might be just mine, but I highly doubt it. It still shocks me how the people I bought this car from could sell a wide-eyed teenager a lemon like this. They knew every problem and they still sold it to us claiming it was perfect.
