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.

Service technician was unable to pop hood for scheduled oil change. Apparently the hood release cable broke or came loose from the hood latch release mechanism. Technician suggested to take to dealership where they may be more familiar with this problem. Dealership was unable to release hood and stated that front bumper probably would need to be removed by cutting it off to access the stuck hood latch. This would be a $400 minimum repair, not including the oil change, which the owner would be responsible for.
