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.

This car was a rust bucket, on top of the many other issues, it started rusting of more and more as the years went by. We bought this used in 2005 and by 2012 had almost completely deteriorated.

Update from Aug 30, 2015: Forgot to mention, all the electrical wiring rusted away and cost over $1000 to have entirely redone.
