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.

Car owned from 2004 and really no major complaints beyond this one and some rear fender rust which I had recently bondoed over. Had overheated occasionally in the past but simply topped up, didn't realize that leak had probably started past head gasket. Finally blew white smoke through exhaust last May and I realized that the head gasket had gone. Got one estimate of 11 hours of labor to fix but decided to junk the car given its age and figuring there was a chance that additional work may have been necessary once the pistons/cylinders were visible.
