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.

Regarding NHTSA recall no. 11V-464, upon receipt of notification, I contacted a local dealer who refused to make the required appointment for inspection of the vehicle. I was informed that there are too many vehicles to be inspected at this time for an appointment to made, and that we would receive a telephone call at an unspecified time in the future which would then permit us to make an appointment. Since the defect, if there is a defect in this vehicle, can cause sudden loss of control of the vehicle without warning, I am deeply concerned by the inability and unwillingness of the dealer to make an appointment to inspect this vehicle. What is the point of issuing recall notices and a procedure in which vehicles are to be inspected when the dealer refuses to make an appointment to inspect the vehicle?
