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.

Hi my car caught fire!! the car began smoking thick white smoke through the air conditioning and when we pulled off the street and opened the hood the car was in fire. I really don't feel safe in that car. This would be the 4th time I take it to the dealer. First 3 times was for the air container not working properly, evaporator and some other parts were replaced and now it went up in flames. They say the car is fine but I just don't feel safe any more. This happened 6/29/15 my car is only 8 months old I bought it 10/27/14. I am very concern for other people who have this same car it is not safe.
