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 pulled out of my office parking lot and as I was trying to cross into traffic going left, my car died, instrument panel light up like a christmas tree, with a car heading my way. By luck I knocked it into neutral and had enough momentum to get out of the way. Barely escaping an accident. At any moment in the future, I could see this error again: "electrical system failure: Stop!", which kills the motor, and means no brake or steering assistance system (power steering), airbag, safety belt pretensioner, and other vehicle safety features.
