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.

Under 50,000 miles exhaust pipe broke, this was welded and repaired. Under 70,000 a hairline crack that encircles the pipe was behind a welded bracket broke again for a second time, this was welded again for repair. The 3rd time 170,000 broke again and this pipe was replaced entirely. Now the 4th time, at 178,000 miles this has broken again. This is awaiting a replacement.
