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.

it would appear that a mechanic with 30 years experience cannot do the timing belts on a Skoda car.only Volkswagen dealers are able to do this work.car was bought as a Taxi with 3 years unlimited mileage warranty and all service parts used were from Skoda dealer and carry a 2 year warranty ,but it would appear only if the dealer carry out the work.
