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.

We drove out of our way to a mechanic who knew this would be covered and reimbursed by GM ($500) because it was a known failure. This part was previously made from metal. I hope GM has a new CEO because cheating by skimping never pays off in the long run. I swore I would only buy American. Now I am swearing at buying American.
