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.

I go to work using the highway. I am glad I was not going fast and far from home. I cannot understand why the motor mount would break and how the the engine dropped to fall on the axle.

while my daughter was driving this car, and there are 2 witnesses to this, the engine and transmission fell out of the car causing the air bag to deploy and knocking out my daughter, causing injuries to her face, chest, and leg.
