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.

July 21, 2006 was my 40th birthday. I wanted to celebrate it with just a nice quiet dinner at the Lone Star Restaurant in Anderson. But before I could order my steak... the hostess interrupted me and asked me, "Do you own a green Oldsmobile Intrigue?" I responded, Yes m'am, I do." She said, Well then, your car is on fire." The fire department was called, they responded, and after an hour they finally got it under control.

The pictures show the end results. I thank God that it wasn't in the garage or I was driving on the highway when it happened.
