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.

Turn signals only work intermittently. I have seen numerous reports of this as a problem with Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo vehicles made in 2002 and 2003, possibly other years. This absolutely should be under recall. Please take this into consideration. Thank you.
