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.

Defective auto jack. The consumer used the jack as instructed in the manual. As the consumer began to remove the wheel the jack broke and the vehicle collapsed suddenly. The consumer was able to get out of the way without being hurt. The consumer believes the jack is made of flimsy metal. The consumer returned the jack to the dealer who didn't seem the least bit surprised or concerned about the collapse of the jack. The dealer ordered a replacement jack.
