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 put my key in the ignition, never turned key. Car started by itself with key in ignition on off, removed key and car kept running. Heard something explode under hood, smoke and fire under hood. Called fire department. Starter caught fire, caused new battery to be damaged completely dead. Needed new starter and battery quoted $820.00.
