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.

This is my mother's car, not mine, she's 54 years old and she does not drive crazy. Last week her front spring suspension broke for no reason. I'm a mechanic, and I've never even heard of that kind of failure, it had to be a manufacturer defect. When she went at the dealer (which wasn't where she bought the car) they said that her car wasn't under warranty, so it would cost a $120 plus labor to repair the car. So she bought a used part and had it replaced. Personally, I think the dealer should have told her, that they never seen that type of problem before and they should informed the manufacturer of this defect.
