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.

AFTER RETURNING TO TENNESSEE TO PICK UP AUTO THAT WAS JUST REPAIRED AT THE COST OF $618.00 FOR REPLACING PLASTIC INTAKE MANIFOLD. WENT TO DRIVE CAR 2 DAYS LATER AND IT WOULD NOT CRANK OVER. HAD VEHICLE TOWED TO MECHANIC AND RECEIVED BAD NEWS THAT THE HEAD GASKET WAS BLOWN DUE TO THE PLASTIC INTAKE MANIFOLD WHICH I JUST HAD REPLACED. TO THIS DAY, I CAN NOT AFFORD TO GET MY CAR FROM THE SHOP BECAUSE I AM ON FIXED INCOME AND CAN NOT AFFORD THE BILL OF $1,108. I CONTACTED FORD IN DETROIT AND THEY TOLD ME "MY" PARTICULAR "VIN #" WAS NOT PART OF THE RECALL IN 2006 WHICH I WAS NEVER NOTIFIED OF.
