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.

My battery died on the way to work. I took it to a auto shop near work. They stated it was the alternator. So I put in a new one; which I thought fixed the problem, but did not. The day after I put in a new battery; two days later my battery was dead. I have no idea what the hell is going on- all my electrical systems are off or out (CD player). I have taken it to a backyard mechanic who has fixed my cars before. How can this happen?
