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.

In July I bought a 2002 Saturn Vue. Over christmas holidays I noticed it was leaking transimission fluid from a connection in front of the vehicle. I was amazed to find these lines totally unprotected and vulnerable to road hazard damage. Due to their proximity to the exhaust I'm concerned with a rupture and fire. I have pictures available to show the location of these lines but am unable to attach them to this type of file. This is an accident waiting to happen!
