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.

After filling my tank in Wexford with unleaded i was traveling back to Dublin(abt 1Hr 15mins drive) when i noticed something flapping in my rear window.i pulled over & noticed that there was something coming out of my exhaust.at first i thought it was what looked like animal hair but when i pulled abt a 20ft long piece of it out i realized that it couldn't be that.my dad reckons its insulation from the exhaust.the car seems to be running fine and ive had no problems with it.can anyone tell me what this is and if it is serious?

Regards,

Kevin
