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.

On the evening of December 13, 2010, victim left his car running in his garage. The car has a "smart key" which is a remote key-fob. This means that he does not have to turn a key to turn the ignition on and off. Instead, the car turns on and off by pressing the same button on the dash board. He must have forgotten to turn the car off. He then went to sleep and suffered carbon monoxide poisoning during the night. He was found unconscious on the floor the next morning. The car was still running. The victim was taken to the hospital, where he is in the icu and sedated.
