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.

IS 250

Without warning, the vehicle stopped accelerating as I was driving so I pulled off the road onto the shoulder. Once the car stopped, smoke began to come through the vents so I exited the vehicle. Several minutes later I could see flames coming from under the hood. Before the fire department could make it to the scene, the entire front end of the car burned completely. The fire department said they were going to classify it as a "mechanical failure".
