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 parked the car in my indoor garage (part of the interior of my home). Several hours later, I began to feel ill and collapsed on the floor. I was able to call 911 and an emergency crew responded to my home. I was unable to open the door, but they were able to gain access. They immediately determined that my home was filled with carbon monoxide and found that the source was the car in the garage. They determined that the car's engine had been left on and the battery was dead. This was the result of me walking away from the car, which has a "smart-key" ignition, with the engine still running. I did not hear any alert from the car warning me that the engine was running. The medics said that 5 more minutes in my home would have been fatal, and I was rushed by ambulance to a hospital, where I remained for 3 days.
