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.

I came out after work one day into the parking lot when i unlocked my car via the keyless remote and I noticed the mirror lights didn't come on, but the car unlocked so I didn't think much of it. I got in and turned the key and the truck just died. Wouldn't start. I laughed and thought it had to be a joke because I hadn't seen the truck since 8 that morning, sure enough, tried again, and I could hear the starter clicking. It was a giant inconvenience being stuck in the middle of a parking lot in Canada, in December. It was maybe -16C with the wind incorporated. I had to wait until my mom could drive up and jump the truck before it started. I haven't encountered a problem with it since.
