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.

In may, the passenger rear coil spring broke for no appant reason. It lodged into the tire and ruined it. This happened before it was rearended in January 2003. Now the rear driver coil spring has broken. I have never heard of coil springs just breaking for no reason. Is there a recall that I do not know about?
