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.

I was driving in my lane at 40 mph until an austex towing truck went into my lane without a signal and I was right beside him. I honked to no avail and he was still proceeding into my lane. I hit the brakes as hard as I could to avoid him hitting me and I had to swerve a little to my left (to my left was the curb as it was a 2 lane road) to avoid him hitting my right side of the car. After I avoided him, he was driving half into both lanes for about 5 seconds then he returned to his lane.
