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.

I bought my car brand new in December 2008 and within a week I noticed that the radio did not get good reception in some areas. I brought my car into the dealership where I purchased the vehicle and they could not duplicate the problem. I have this problem occur on a daily basis and the slightest things cause signal interruptions. Some of these items are other vehicles, metal building overhangs, telephone poles, rain clouds, fog, trees, and random other items. I have had my car in the dealership 5 times now and they have replaced both the radio and the antenna that connects from the radio to the external antenna on the rear deck lid of my car. Neither one of these repairs have fixed my vehicle. The dealership has noted on 2 of my repair orders that they have driven other cars on the lot like mine and have experienced similar issues.
