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 squeezed the glove compartment handle one day, and it literally came off in my hand. Because the handle locks using the key, they want to charge you for a whole new glove compartment door, and re-key the new one to match your existing keys. For $372, we decided just to not have a glove compartment.
