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.

Car just turned a year old with 10,477 going down the highway 65miles per hour when I thought my tire was going flat because I felt a jerk in the acceleration I pulled over to check the tires I saw all blue smoke coming from exhaust. It was not until I go to the side of the road to noticed a sign of engine light or codes came on until I was in park checking my tires. The problem was rectified, broken fuel lines...after discussing this with other they informed me I was pretty darn lucky due to the fact the engine could have ignited...
