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.

These are just a few of the things that happen- have friends in the car that can verify all happenings. Letters to ira rosenburrg (?) from prime motors, scarborough, Maine go unanswered, just asked to sit down and talk, some rude encounters, presently want to do a transmission oil repair at 1500, car cost 57,000 thinking one had a reliable car, only has low mileage either don't dare drive it a long distance or it is in the garage for question: Why do we see major recalls for many cars but never see major recalls for Mercedes when internet shows many people have problems"???? would I recommend Mercedes to anyone---- never question is "car in garage again""
