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.

MY CAR HAS A BAD MIST AND EVERY AUTO SHOP TRY TO FIX THE SAME PROBLEM. THEY TOLD ME ITS THE WIRES, I NEED A TUNE-UP, GOT THAT DONE, BUT DIDN'T FIX THE PROBLEM. THE NEXT SHOP TOLD ME ITS A SENSOR. GOT THAT DONE, BUT STILL DIDN'T FIX THE PROBLEM. MY CAR CUTS OFF ON ME IN THE MIDDLE OF THE HIGHWAY ALSO AT A STOP LIGHT OR A STOP SIGN, I HAVE TO PUT MY CAR IN PARK TO KEEP IT FROM CUTTING OFF. NO AUTO SHOP KNOWS THE PROBLEM AND I KEEP PAYING THEM TO PUT IT ON THE MACHINE IT THEY ALL READ THE SAME ( SOMETHING ABOUT BACK FIRE) AND THEY ALL TELL ME TO CHANGE MY WIRES. DAMMMM HOW MANY SETS DO I HAVE TO GET SO MY F*CKING CAR CAN ACT RIGHT. THE ONLY REASON WHY I HAVEN'T BROUGHT ANOTHER BECAUSE THIS ONE IS PAID FOR.
