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.

States with the worst lemon laws

#1

Louisiana. Imagine being without your brand new car for 3 months out of the first year before being able to get help through the Lemon Law. The 90 day "out-of-service" criteria is unrealistic. Who can afford to be without their car for that long? Coverage is only for one year.

#2

Colorado & Alaska. Vehicles must be out of service for 30 business days (42-45 calendar days) before qualifying for the Lemon Law. Coverage is also only for one year, the least amount of time that states offer.
