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.

problem #2

My car was recalled for a problem connected to the fuel sending unit in 2006. It has now been back in for repair for the fuel sending unit over 14 times in the past 4 years. The past several repairs have been made via the guidance of engineers at from the main factory and yet my car is still having the same problem and the dealership nor the main company are willing to take responsibility.
