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 purchased a used vehicle in March 2006. At that time I was provided a "car report" that showed no accident history/clean to everything. At a later time I went to purchase new insurance and I was first alerted to an "accident". I found out the vehicle was in an accident in June 2002, over $700 in damage. In 2003 again, was taken to a body shop for repairs. I have tried to work with the dealership to handle this situation. I took the vehicle to one of their vendors-same outcome. My vendor same outcome--extensive damage/frame straightening etc. I asked for my money back or a new vehicle. They refused. It would cost more to fix this car than it is worth. I need some assistance. I looked them up on the BBB and they have 55 reports in 36 months. Not to mention they are making a 1000% profit off of me.
