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.

The car suddenly stopped not letting me start the engine or move the car again after two minutes. It was something very dangerous but I was lucky that no other car was behind us at that moment. When we had the chance to switch the car on again, there was an alert symbol shown telling us to drive carefully at very slow speed and preferably to take it to the dealer for service. The dealer had the car few weeks where they changed something in the automatic gear system and its software. This car had previously an engine change more than a year ago for problems in the oil consumption. All this happen in costa rica (not usa).
