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.

How would you like to have to hold the trunk lid open by hand everytime you unlock it? That's what you have to do when an Olds Alero's torque rods fracture and break thus disabling the trunks ability to stay open. Obviously this was a poor design because this happened to my car in 05 I got it fixed for $115.00 and it did the same thing again in 08! ARRRRRGH!
