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.

As I was getting into my car at night (2003 VW Gti) I noticed it was very cold. I then proceeded to try to turn the car on but the starter would not give, then to no avail I noticed that the airbag sensor light would not turn off. Roadside assitance through VW was contacted and stated unfortunatly under the extreme cold and due to it being so late at night they could not contact a tow to assist me.
