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.

Automatic transmission 4T65-E had to be rebuilt with only 70K miles in 14 years of very moderate driving, which averages out 5000 miles per year. Cost of rebuild was $1500.

Fraudulent vehicle inspection & emissions done on a regarding 2001 Oldsmobile Intrigue, purchase date, March 17, 2014. I have been back and forth between their approved shops and my usual mechanic taking an excessive time from work to try to get the repairs done. The car was found to have an issue with the fuel distribution, the front turn signals aren't firing which will require a replacement headlight assembly, and I was also told that the gas gauge sensor may need to be replaced. The oil light & check engine lights are also on. All these things I was assured would be repaired by [xxx], the salesperson. He stated the inspection facility, pa station id#[xxx], has been sending the vehicles to them partially inspected and they are aware of the issue. This vehicle "inspection" was on 3/4/14, and I believe this shop, and others like it, are knowingly defrauding consumers of this establishment. ┐parts of this document have been redacted to protect personally identifiable information pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).┐
