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.

the car had to be towed twice at a cost to me and now this year the car was recalled for (surprise!!) ignition problems. This is the 4th recall on this car for various reasons, I know it was only the second or third year of this model and they were getting the bugs out but it was still a bitch to deal with!
