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.

Besides the many other problems my 2004 Volkswagen Passat has... the left front axle had to be replaced, which cost about $750 (maybe more, can't remember since i've put so much money into this car to fix it). Was having problems turning the steering wheel & car was making an awful noise, finally took it in to auto repair shop, not the dealership because they would've charged more!
