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 was leaving school and I started to smell gas, so I stopped and checked to see if there was any leaking and there wasn't. a week had went by and I didn't smell the gas anymore but my radio and dash lights had quit working. So I had the fuses changed and the speedometer started working again but not the radio. Several months later my temp gauge started shooting all the way up to hot right after it was cranked. So I had it checked and my vehicle wasn't running hot. The one night I was driving home from town and my car shut off and a temp light was blinking. I popped the hood and my hoses from the radiator to the motor had busted from all the pressure built up. The next day I brought my car to a shop and had a new motor put in. And low and be-hold my transmission starts shifting really hard when I go to start off. I had it looked at but they couldn't find anything with it. But since ive been keeping the transmission fluid checked weekly it hasn't been doing it as much. But it still scares the crap out of me.
