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.

On September 18 I was traveling down interstate 10 when my 2004 Volvo S60 completely stopped running while going 70 mph. I was unable to get the car out of the traffic (no power to drive to the shoulder). My car was completely useless. I called 911 and roadside assistance to get help before I was hit (I was unable to exit the vehicle due to moving traffic on either side of me). After 50 minutes I was hit in the rear. The vehicle was towed to bergeron Volvo. I was informed that the fuel pump had failed. There was no warning and the vehicle had just been in for service 1 month before. It only has 24,000 miles.
