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.

A few weeks ago, I went to start my van and it wouldn't start! I thought it was the battery, but it wasn't. It just automatically turned on. Then day after day after day the same thing, just a click.... wait.... wait........ wait some more...... then the light panel comes on, then maybe the windshield wipers feel like moving, then vaula!! it turns on. It has been getting colder, so I thought that was the problem. Then the driver side door locked all on it's own, while the car was OFF. What the hell?!!!! Does anyone know what this is all about. Oh, and for the past two days, the brake light comes on.
