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.

After buying this car used, the dealer's $2000 repair quote was almost like buying the car all over again! After doing the repair myself, I still spent close to 1500 dollars in parts and tools. The manual says the chain should last the life of the engine, but now I know that is not always true.
