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.

A week after I got the car, the lights came on then I was pulled over for speeding... It happened 4 times in three days!!!! I hadn't driven a car in almost ten years so how was I to know that I was a fast turtle?? !! When I took it to the dealer.. they found NOTHING wrong with it... so after the third time I was stopped I took it to a different repair shop... They said the computer codes had been changed and that is why I had SERVICE ENGINE SOON lights and TRACTION light on all the time.. When I was taking it back to the dealer with the paperwork in my hand, I was stopped yet again!!! $525 dollars and two boxes of donuts later... knock on computer keys.. that problem is fixed!! Now read about the window regulators!!
