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.

problem #2

While my wife paula was driving on the ne extension of the Pennsylvania turnpike, the driver's power seat unit moved forward on its own without warning! she had to pull over to avoid an accident. This cycle repeated itself 3 more times that day! at the time our deaf 9-year old daughter was riding in the back seat. The dealer from which we bought the car (was used) 2 weeks prior found the power seat unit to be defective after we brought it back, and they refused to honor payment of a replacement. In order to have a safe car we had to pay for it ourselves.
