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.

first, had to tow to dealership when it died. Dealership charged $120 to 'look'. cleaned throttle and pronounced it fixed until tested on road, then said egr valve shot and needed new glow plugs. Had already spent $700 up till now. Parts to finish the job were another $6-700.00, with diy labor.
