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 car starting bucking, then shaking, then the check engine light started blinking and I smelled a sulfur smell. The check engine light went solid for about 30 seconds then started blinking again. I wouldn't be so upset if this wasn't the 5th time that this has happened in a month. The first time he 'fixed' it, it was supposed to be the end of my problems.

The irony involved is that I was planning to get rid of the car this week to buy a new car, but now, I have to pay more money to get the damn thing fixed because I can't have the car towed for a trade-in
