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.

This car bought for 17 yr, the brake line clip busted causing the brake line to fall and rub against the crankshaft , which caused a hole in the hose , and then lost all brake fluid which resulted in loss of brakes on highway, this could have resulted in a fatality on the highway with my child!!!, but because she was almost stopped it didn't, but it could have been the worse thing ever!!!, GM needs to find either a metal clip or something else to hold this line instead of a plastic clip that can break easier. The money wasn't the issue but the safety of my child was!!!!
