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.

  • miles


Since the first month after buying the car, gas mileage has been no more than 30 miles per gallon, which is at least 20 miles less than advertised... on more than one occasion the car has jerked forward in traffic almost causing accidents and when driving more than 60 mph the car loses control, also the car has shut off numerous times while driving 60 mph almost causing more accidents.
