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.

Notice my lights would go on & off on dash board during G day times thinking car had dimming effects, then notice when the car was off & lights should be off they would stay on. Then I would be sitting outside look at car & lights would just come on by themselves. The worst I was trying & headlights & insides lights went off while I was driving and continue to do so. I'm scared for me and my family safety. I dont even want the car anymore and sometimes smells like there's electrical burning or something dont know how to explain it.
