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 check engine light was coming on. The dealership said it was the thermostat then changed their minds and said the oxygen sensor was the problem. I replace the sensor and the problem corrected but this was only the beginning a my nightmare. The car started burning oil (which is likely why the sensor went). Ultimately I was informed the vehicle needed a new engine which is totally ridiculous. Very poor quality for a high end vehicle!
