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.

Got transmission work done on 9/19/06. Pick car up that evening and drove home on city streets. On 9/20/06 got on freeway to go to work and accelerated to 55 mph at which time the hood snapped back against the windshield. Had car towed to dealership where the service work was done. Said the problem with the hood was due to a faulty/failed hood latch. Dealership replaced the hood and installed a new hood latch.
