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 stated had a coolant leak coming from radiator to her engine. She went on the website and found a couple of service bulletins, NHTSA item 631329, and 633628 that related to the coolant leak problem. The problem was fixed. Currently, was having another coolant problem, and she was taking vehicle to the dealer on Wednesday. She was losing coolant, but she saw no sign of a leak.
