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.

After bringing my car into the dealer for recall service I found that the dealer had not performed some of the work. The dealer did not address NHTSA campaign id number : 03V006000, which is about the wheel bolts. The dealer said that since I had moved to Florida the recall was not valid even though it is nationwide. The vehicle came from Ohio and had steel wheels in Ohio during the winter. The dealer should replace the bolts but have put me in danger instead.
