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 had to buy a new (used) engine after the first one failed. Apparently the engine was not receiving oil, because some other part broke. I cannot complain too much about the manufacturer, because the vehicle had around 150,000 miles on it, and it was an 11 year old car. The service was terrible, though. It took far too long to repair, and they wanted an arm and a leg for an engine. (I had to find one on my own.) I should have known better than to take it to a backwoods repair garage.
