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.

I am lucky to be alive after the ball joint on the right front side of my 1996 Eclipse broke and the whole front-end of my car fell apart while driving to work one morning. The CV shaft also broke as a result. The police, tow truck driver and my mechanic all told me that I probably would have died if this had happened on the freeway.

I later discovered that the ball joint was recalled but I was never notified!
