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.

On January 22, 2008 I brought a Mazda pretege5 year 2002 58,000 miles $ $12,000 from city world 3305 boston road bronx, New York 10469 (718) 655-7000. The sale managers told me this car is excellent for me. "nice, good and everything so I settle for the Mazda pretege5.? however, since I brought the car I find myself going to the used automobile dealer every other day because there a problem with the car. During the week I got to sexually harassed, by sales individual, they were touching me. First, sun roof all of a sudden stops working. Brought it to Toyota service in the bronx. They told me two days later they don't have the budgetary parts. I miss my class that weekend because I didn't have a car to get to class. Secondly, the car was getting over heating all of a sudden. I don't know why, I don't even drive much school and work is 10 minutes away from each other. I brought the car because I have a class at dobbs ferry. Thirdly, today February 05, 2008 the car couldn't start next to my job in nereid avenue, so I called them, they told me to call the towing guy I call them. The towing guy told me my tire is flat. My point is I only brought the car for two weeks now. I only drive for two days only in general. Most of the time they have the car in their possession. I am paying insurance for the car, when I don't even drive it. Why that have to happen to me. I M a student trying to get by in school. I am a single woman all alone trying to survive. I don't have anyone to call to generously help me. Can someone please help me" now the car dealer place refuses to do anything. I told them. I cannot drive the car anymore. They refuse to talk to me. They give me a run around. Please, I can't take this anymore I work at night trying to make a decent living. I presently work with the mentally retarded children, and I do not have to come to the car dealer place every other day, because their something wrong with the car, it just not fair.
