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.

Once upon a time, it 's about 2 years ago, I drove my car in highway, my car hood flip over and bend my windshield. I was shock and scared to death. My eye vision was completely blocked by flip over hood which cover all my wind shield. I can't see anything in the front. It's lucky that no others near by, I was able to manage drove slowly over on the side and stop my car. There was no signal nor alarms in my dashboard to indicated that my hood was not tightly closed so it was flipped over to bend my windshield and my windshield was stroke by hood and broken. But I was in danger to death because there was no indication and the accident happened and I was manage survived lived.
