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.

A woman ran a red light and crashed into the front passenger side of my 2004 Mercedes Benz ml 350. After the impact there was smoke coming from under the hood. A driver coming from the opposite direction yelled out that my car was on fire. When I got out of the car, I saw a big puddle under the car and it ignited. Within a few minutes the car was completely engulfed in flames. When the police arrived they determined from the amount of front end damage to the other car that the driver was not speeding and that the impact didn't seem to be sufficient to cause my car to catch fire.
