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.

2006 Pontiac Vibe was going in city look down to see my car was over heating pulled over to side of road to look under hood found that the cooling fan had fallen off. And the fan fuse was blown my car is only 5yrs old the has to be a defect my machine told my the baring or bushing were gone in the motor. If I didn't happen to notice the problem I would have blown the engine I am also wondering if this is part of the recall for the cooling problem that has to do with sensors.
