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 had a slow speed accident in my 1998 Plymouth Neon. I was in a parking lot and only going 5 mph. The other car hit my left front fender. My strut is broken & various other parts of the suspension, including the axel. I can't understand how this could happen in a slow speed accident. I see there is a rear suspension defect and am wondering about the front.

Vehicle makes a popping noise going around corners. Automatic transmission allows driver to shift without applying brakes (no/defective interlock).
