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.

Had this car for less than a month. I bought it used yes, but the engine and everything was running really well. On Thursday, the engine all of a sudden started knocking and sounded like no oil in it. I took it back to where I had the oil changed like two weeks before and they told me the Cam Seal came out of it.It got so bad that the engine is shot and needs to be replaced.
