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 car broke in the middle of the 45 mph road in a very dangerous intersection. Towed the car to dealer and they told me the engine is completely damaged and need to be replaced. They told me the timing chain got loose and will cost ~$15K to replace the damaged engine.
