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.

Takata recall why aren't parts available to fix this problem. How long can I expect to wait for a solution to this serious problem" who is responsible if someone is injured as a result of this recall. Why isn't more being done about it. Why is this company still allowed to be in business"

Thank you.
