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.

Vehicle became undriveable due to the fact that the air suspension completely gave out and the shock absorbers were no longer working. The approximate starting time to this problem, when the compressor was acting up, was back in September of 2010. The car sits so low to the ground now that I will have to get rid of it altogether (either have a junk yard buy it or get rid of it as a parts car), as it's unsafe for me to drive, let alone have my daughter in. Also, I'm a poor mother, unemployed, who definitely can't afford to pay the large costs of getting this fixed. In talking to people about the problem, it's either the compressor has gone bad, a wiring problem, or a problem with the on/off switch in the trunk.
