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.

Last month I purchesed a new 2004 Subaru Outback. After my purchase I discovered that the vehicle had been repaired by the dealership for a recall that involved the speed control cable. This problem could cause the throttle to remain open and the driver could lose control of the vehicle and crash. Had I know about this problem I would have not purchased this vehicle. The dealer never told me about the repairs or recall and I beleived I was buying a new and safe vehicle.
