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 go into work after parking it then a few minutes later someone tells me its smoking. I assume it overheated and the head gasket popped then suddenly someone else bursts in and says "hey I believe your car is on fire." and there ya go. My car was engulfed by Satans fury...

car caught on fire

My husband drove the car home, parked it and we were getting ready for bed. Suddenly there was a knock on the door and someone said, "Lady, your car's on fire and I called 9-1-1!" Thank goodness it wasn't parked in the garage that night. We have always had small electrical problems with the car, but this was just a normal drive home from class for my husband, nothing out of the ordinary.
