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.

It sat out in the 26 below weather, and even though it was plugged in it wouldn't do anything. The dash wouldn't even light up. I still don't know if I need a new battery or if the one I have just needs to get charged up. A jumpstart from another running car worked once and then it went bad 5 hrs later. I hate this. I am a college student and this is the last problem I need.
