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.

I had this vehicle in for a oil change on 6/16 and there were no engine problems until now. It basically died on the highway, sputtering and bucking. When the tow operator noticed a good amount of oil seeping underneath. When he looked in the area of the oil filter, he just ran a finger over it and it came right off! Now, I am sure there is no way an oil filter should come off this easily. I have sent the garage a faxed letter this morning on the problem. I am hoping they realize the fault and liability of their garage in the matter. There is a good deal of engine damage that will need to be addressed because some garage person is incapable of handling a basic oil change.
