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.

Contacted a local auto dealer, cutter Pontiac (waipahu, Hawaii - levy, service agent, ph# 808-564-9520) and inquired about my vehicles posted 3 recall issues; ignition, fuel system, & steering wheel. I even emailed an official list of my vehicle's recall issues I was told the following, after levy had the opportunity to review my email, with my recall list: 1. ignition - I was told that my concern had past the original date of recall, 2004 "?", so dealer is unable help me resolve this issue 2. fuel system - I noted that I smelled fuel back a few weeks prior, I would need to bring my vehicle down and they would diagnose the problem, but would charge me for the diagnostic check. 3. steering wheel - again, I was told they would need to do a diagnostic check, but still charge me. I informed that my VIN, did not show up on their computer list I initially made an a service appointment, but cancelled...... as I was not prepared to pay diagnostic tests to confirm my vehicle's recall issues. Thank you
