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 was driving on a freeway when large pieces of tire starting flying in the road from a semi-truck. Several vehicles were attempting to avoid being struck, when a large piece flew up and hit under my car. The outcome was a hole in my gas tank which then proceeded to leak fuel onto the highway. I had to pull over due to the damage. I understand this is considered "active damage" and should not have occurred due to safety standards that should be in place. I was thankful there were no sparks in the immediate vicinity or I would not be here now.
