Finally, TSB's are available on the NHTSA web site:



A new National Highway Traffic Safety Administration database allows you to search your vehicle’s make, model, and year to find technical service bulletins, or TSBs, that are created by the manufacturer and shared with dealers about how to repair recurring problems. (Note that the link goes to the NHTSA recalls page. From there, select the "Vehicle" tab and search using the Year Make Model for your vehicle. The TSBs appear in the search results as manufacturer communications.)

How to Find Free TSBs

To find a TSB, go to NTHSA’s Safety Issues & Recalls page. Type in either your vehicle’s unique 17-character vehicle identification number or its year, make, and model. The site will display recalls, investigations, and complaints. There is also a tab for manufacturer communications, which is where you’ll find TSBs, service campaigns, and other important information. You can sort these communications by type of problem. If you expand the tab for associated documents, you can even find the repair instructions that manufacturers send to dealers. Note that some TSBs released before 2012 will not be available and that the coverage period for older TSBs may have expired.

A dealership or repair shop can also look up available TSBs using the vehicle’s VIN.

If you provide your VIN to a dealership, it should be able to tell you whether any active TSBs apply to your vehicle and whether you would be charged for the repair. In addition, automakers’ websites often list these “secret warranties.” For example, Nissan’s website currently lists service campaigns for paint defects on certain Nissan Rogue SUVs, suspension problems with some Nissan Altima sedans, and brake fluid problems specific to the 2009 Nissan Murano.

It took me while to figure out the last tab, communications, is where theTSB are hidden.
At the bottom of the page, there's a link to see more pages of TSB (Its easy to miss).
