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 have had my van in the shop 5 times for the starter, and 1 time I had to have it towed in it was staying in gauge, and it started to smoke and I would like for someone to do something about it.the dealer will not do a thing about it all they do is change the starter, and they say the flywheel is okay. But it keeps doing the same thing so can you tell me what I can do about this van.and if you would plese call me.
