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 vehicle. Within 10 minutes, still in the same spot where I purchased the vehicle I noticed that the dashboard and the miles seem to have been tampered with. There is also a sticker on the window that says get your next oil change at 245K. I did not pay attention to the fact that he advertised the car as having 122K but the odometer read 116K. He had left his home and I had to keep calling him on his cell phone. After finally reaching him, because his wife told him that the police was at his home, I asked him for a refund and he said no, I don't do refunds for nobody. The police agreed that the dash and the miles seem to have been tampered with but it would be a civil matter and that I would have to take him to court if I wanted a refund. He said that I can switch the car out for another car that he owned but I would have to pay more and that car did not have the right miles on it either. I did some research and found out that he has many cases in clayton county that have been brought against him about cars. I called and left messages about the car not having and failing the emissions that I paid for and he has not returned any of my calls. I tried to get an emission test on October 18, 2008 and it failed. I called him and again my calls went unreturned.
