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.

I was driving about 30 miles per hour when the rear bumper fell off. After further inspection, I notice the frames were almost completely rusted away and everything that is connected to it is in danger of falling off as well including the front bumper that is about to fall off at anytime. I am not a mechanic, but I am sure it is not at all safe driving this vehicle. Every time I get behind the wheel, I fear something terrible is about to happen.

The passenger side exhaust system separated (rusted completely through) at the muffler assembly. This will be the 3rd exhaust system on the car. The first one was replaced while under warrantee because of a CO2 canister failure.
