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.

The contact states that she purchased the car in July of 2004. When she bought the car she was having several problems with the vehicle, and the dealer really didn't' want' to help her with any of her problems. She had an accident, she was not sure what happened with the vehicle, but she said check engine light kept coming on, and she had a tire and oil change. She lost all control of vehicle. She tried hitting the brakes and she didn't have any brakes. Finally the car landed. The dealer just told her that she hit something, but she didn't hit anything. About a month before the accident she took the vehicle in for a tire pressure inspection. The vehicle, while she was driving before the accident, the car dropped to the passenger side. She was going under 60 mph.
