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.

Anytime the car is on, a clicking sounds come from the inside of the car as if the turn signal is on. $200 for the part and labor to change the turn signal switch. This should be recalled, for crying out loud, its a 2001. I am extremely dissatisfied with this.
