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.

The transmission slipped. There was a loud noise coming from under the hood, the transmission leaked fluid, and would not engage when warm. The technician resealed the tailshaft plug. The lug nuts were loose since the vehicle was purchases. The vehicle would cut off while driving. There were rattle noises coming from the chassis when going over bumps. The light had come on, and the temperature would drop by itself. Scc
