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.

If the temperature is below 10 degrees, when I start up the engine there is this smoke that come out of the exhaust until the engine comes up to temp. I have had the the turbo replaced, which they told me would solve the problem but yesterday when the temp was 7degrees I could not believe all of the smoke. today nothing?

Thank You Please Help,
