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.

My car died on the way up a steep hill in the middle of nowhere. It was 101 degrees that day and I was driving with my two daughters. The oldest one was 7 months pregnant and a severe diabetic. We were a little nervous about the effects of the heat on her conditions. This was the second alternator. The first one was covered under our warranty. I felt that this should not have happened again.

My car died while driving in the middle of a rain storm. I had the battery replaced the week before because it kept dying. It turns out it wasn't the battery, but the alternator.
