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.

Bought a brand new car. Whenever it rains, water comes down the center console and makes a puddle on the passenger side foot well.

When using the dryer in a car wash the hard spare tire cover was blown off the spare tire and bashed against the vehicle and then the ground severely scratching it and cracking it. Had it no completely come off at that point it is probable that it would have flown off into the from of any following vehicle had I been traveling down a busy road potentially causing an accident. These items should "never" come of under normal use conditions. This is a serious potential accident source as well as a potential source of a law suit against the owner operator of the vehicle. In addition it is hard and can cause windshield damage to any following vehicles and should never come off when properly attached.
