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.

DO NOT buy a Saab. They will be your worst nightmare. They are nice cars inside and very comfortable, but require many expensive repairs and when it comes time to sell the car, no one will want to buy it. I have replaced my radiator, started motor, heating valve, and head gaskets are next. My car has had major problems since it hit around 120,000 miles. Also if you talk to a mechanic, they will not work on Saab's because they are so complicated. This is why Saab is no longer in business.
