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 was driving on a street with a 25 mph speed limit when all of a sudden the car hesitated and made some weird noises. I continued to pull over to get out of the way when there was a huge bang and the car came to an sudden stop. I was able to get to the side of the road. Smoke was coming out of the engine area and the car smelled terrible. I jumped out, got my dog out and called 911. The fire department and police came. Found metal parts all over the road. Smoke was mainly due to oil that was all over the engine and bottom of car. Right now the initial diagnosis is that the transfer casing blew along with a variety of other parts. Thank goodness I was not on the freeway. Additionally, I was lucky that the large parts that blew off the car did not put a hole in the bottom of my car or damage someone else's car.
