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.

Situation: Wife and 3-year-old daughter were locked in the car - unable to get out. Police and locksmith called - both, unable to unlock car. Police had to break window so they could get out. This happened on high temperature day in a public area. Wife parked car at grocery store and proceeded to get out. She accidentally pressed down on the door lock, locking the doors. When she attempted to open the door it would not unlock. She attempted to restart car and it would crank but not run. She pulled up on the door lock but door would not open. She attempted to restart car again. When key was entered into ignition, the alarm sounded. She honked down a nearby policeman, who proceeded to call three other policemen and a locksmith. None of which could unlock the car. Eventually they broke the window to get them out. Car is currently being towed to plaza Land Rover in St. Louis, mo. I have called Land Rover N.a. no determination as of yet. If this situation had occurred in a non-public location, the results could have been much more dire.
