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.

Have gone through 4 batteries -- 3 within 3 months. Fletcher jones dealership in las vegas, nv keeps insisting nothing wrong with vehicle (Lexus RX300-2002) + simply replaces the dead battery. Lexus regional service never seems able to reach the dealership. No one has any idea or explanation why batteries keep failing for no apparant reason.
