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.

Timing belt started to flap at start-up at 70,000 miles. Noise quickly went away... so I ignored it. At 100,000 miles the sound no longer went away. It cost $800 for full timing belt replacement. OK... that is right on schedule. However, what if the belt slipped off and ruined the engine. The mechanic indicated that adjusting tension is no more than one hour of work. Sounds like cheap insurance to me.
