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.

Just bought my new 2003 Grand Am and drove off the lot. I started driving and then the RPM's went into the red. If I took the car over 30 mph then I would red line my car. I drove all the way back to the dealer and told them what happened. They had the nerve to ask me to drive with them due to the fact that they though I was doing something wrong. I asked them to take it back and they wouldn't.
