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.

After the car went for an oil change, the seat belt sensor (beeper) stopped working. MINIwould not pay for this to be replaced. Said if the seat belt sensor was not working, the airbags might not deploy. Very costly repair (computer system replacement). Shouldn't safety features (required by the government) be fixed, without charge, for the life of the vehicle?
