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 trying to get my 2005 Toyota Avalon's emission testing done. I went to two testing sites and they were unable to read the emissions system on my car. I went to the dealership and they said that it is a common issue and that your emissions will have to be done old school and that Toyota can not keep up with emissions. The problem is that in ga they have done away with the old school style testing and there are only a few locations that still do it. I was told by the dealership that they had 3 other 2005 Avalons with the same issue and told them they had to dot it the old school way.
