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.

so incredibly sick of my car. Got it as a used dealership in the first month I purchased it I had to bring it back for a number of problems. after the warranty ran out I ended up having to replace the starter and master cylinder. The worst failure had just recently started happening, car started jerking like crazy and would not shift into any other gear. Transmission and check engine light came on, I took it to a mechanic that specializes in transmission. he ran his machine on it and 7 yes I repeat 7 different electrical codes popped up. The electrician told me It would cost at least

$100 just to find out what the problem is.
