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 have owned the car for 2 1/2 years now. 6 months after purchasing it the right inner tire rod snapped. This was replaced by a mechanic. One year later, during MA state inspection I was made aware that the same tire rod was gone again. Now it is one year again and once again during inspections my tire rod is gone. Each time it had been repaired professionally.
