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.

Have had 3 serpentine belts replaced as well as the others because of what the VW dealership told me as a manufacturing pulley defect/misalignment. They never did anything about it. Never gave me a solution to fix it either. So the belts squeak, chatter, and so on... so instead of replacing them all the time I use a belt lubricant. It has helped.
