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.

have had alternator and water pump replaced and have had to replace belt three times and it is still breaking the belt. Can not figure out what is causing the belt to break. The first two belts had three or four spots where it was eaten into. This last one just snapped and broke. I am not replacing the belt again until someone can tell me what is causing them to break. If anyone knows please tell me how to fix this problem. Thanks
