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 had never had a problem with my 2004 Pontiac Sunfire. Saturday I was going shopping and the car started making engine noise. The got real loud and engine shut off and flashers came on by there self. No oil light came on however when I got out of the car i found all the oil from the motor on the ground. One of the piston crumble inside the motor and made a big hole in the motor.
