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.

Just bought the jeep. At first I could smell burning plastic. The dealer said it was a new car and just needs time to break in all the parts. Two days later there was smoke coming from the center dash vents. Took back to dealer. They replaced the duct work and put thermal insulation on the radio. That lasted about a week and I could smell burning plastic again. I put in my own radio and haven't had a problem since.
