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.

The vehicle had an extra added safety device used to stabilize the vehicle, the consumer was told by the dealer that there was no way this vehicle will ever lose traction and skid. The owner has put 381 miles on the vehicle and the dash lights came on and the track off light came on and that special traction device was not working. The second light V.S.C. light vehicle stabilizing control light appeared and the third light which was the check engine came on.
