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'm sick of this. We are a low income family that can't afford to buy another vehicle! Saved for three years to buy a newer van for the five kids (two are disabled) and EVERYTHING is going wrong on it. The gas gauge doesn't work and then right away it refuses to start on my terms, only it's terms. I can't even drive it to get groceries or anything, and now do my grocery shopping at the corner store which doesn't exactly have produce besides canned. On top of it, my son can't go to a special camp for Autisitc kids (and may I add it is only one of two programs in ALL of Saskatchewan for Autistic kids) because I have no way to get him there and he needs it to learn.
