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.

I got off of work at 11:30 pm went to start my car and nothing no clicking no groaning not a sound. Everything else worked, just not the most important, starting it!!! I later found out that it was the cars security system malfunctioning and it shut me out from starting it. I also found out that this happens a lot. And people wonder why Oldsmobile went under.
