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.

Car was off road in need of auto insurance and battery -- stored in garage -- went to move it to new location pulled out of the garage and BOOM!! What the hell?? the front springs broke in half (still shiny metal, I might add) and sheared my two front tires in half. I thank God I wasn't on road doing 60 or son is always with me and I highly doubt we would've only regret is not to have pictures. Brought to dealer (JackByrnes, Mechanicville, NY) & they said no they would not cover it....this has only been brought to their attention in older models. The repair cost $500+ (THAT'S with buying the tires from Walmart and $50 save) not to mention the $60 initial tow job. My ex (who is a co-signor) also went down thinking it would make a difference and they might cover the cost....but no luck. I'm currently on disability and money is a definite hardship.....I will be sure to keep my receipts for the repair.
