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.

We've only had car a few days. Purchased it to help a friend financially. After 2 days, anti-theft light comes on and car wouldn't start. Jumped battery 1st time and car started-next time anti-theft light still on and car would not start or jump off. We even bought a new battery-no good. still in shop.
