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.

On February 27th, 2002 I went out to my car to go to lunch. It would not start. I had to call Mitsubishi on my lunch. They had to send out a tow truck. Luckily my work let me go outside to talk with the tow driver when he showed up. It had to be towed to Bakersfield, Ca., which is 30 miles away. After work I had to ask for a ride to Mitsubishi Motors. I was given a rental car for 2-days.
