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.

We have received the mandatory recall letter of July 2016. The open-ended statement: "we will notify you when replacement parts are available" is insufficient. Why" because we already have a recall notice for our 2013 leaf which is already three months old and thus far nothing has been done with that. I am angry because now the "family" car cannot be used as a family car! so the question is when?? will parts be available next year? 5 years from now?? when??"
