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.

OK.... The first time my starter went out 2 yrs ago (1 yr after buying car) I had it replaced. Six months later it went out again but new mechanic said other shop put it in wrong and wires shorted out. Now 1 1/2 yrs later the starter has gone out again!!! It is in the shop now. Anyone else having this problem? ... other than the bad mechanic issue.

Update from Sep 4, 2013: Starter replaced and heavier battery cables added.... thought being that cables were not heavy enough.
