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.

(reported on)

Aurora V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 36,000 miles

The paint started cracking about 36,000 miles. Now it is peeling really bad. Had to replace the alternator about 80,000 miles almost burnt the engine because it did not have enough volts to turn the cooling fans. Replaced one of the tanks in the radiator. Have an electrical problem....door locks and unlocks continuously (seems to happen mostly when it rains or is damp)

The car still rides like a dream though!!
