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 am reporting last second direction changes given by my garmin nuvi 42 gps navigation device. On exit 57 off I20 West to I75/85 the device changed from directing to join I75/85 South to join I75/85 North with less than 300 feet to make the change. Also, the device made a similar last second direction change while traveling North on I75/85. It indicated that I should be in the left 3 lanes but that I was to continue to I75 North. Then it changed with only 300 feet remaining to say that I was to take I85 North. I have reported this to garmin. I believe that these last second direction changes can lead to erratic driving and mishaps.
