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.

I have a 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee limited. The vehicle has less than 60,000 miles. On the engine hood cover, the original and existing gas operated hood support does not hold. There have not been very many opening and closings of the engine compartment. The hood slams down and could cause a personal injury.
