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 my vehicle, I have a backup camera and I'm thankful for it but also I strongly wish that vehicle had that backup sensor system as well with the increasing beeping sound as the vehicle gets closer to an object. Vehicles really need to be equipped with both the camera and backup sensors in combination to be safe. I had a small accident backing up even though I had the camera because my eyes are moving back-and-forth as I'm a maneuvering the car backwards so that I as well do not hit an object on the side. Thanks you for considering my request, from my personal experience I know that it will save lives and injuries.
