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 have received several recall/repair letters from DaimlerChrysler. Each time I call the local dealer, I'm told that the manufacturer is low on parts, but they will notify me when replacement parts are available. After five months of requests and delays, I have finally told the dealer that the safety repair needs to be completed promptly. The dealer has agreed to schedule service now, but only after months of waiting and excuses, not to mention my final push to them.
