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 was shaking and it was stuttering and hesitating. The pick up was very slow. The fastest it went up to was 45 mph. It felt like it was changing gears while I was driving it. Then when I reached a big hill, and thought it was going to die out on me, all of a sudden it kicked in and just zoomed up the hill. It was very weird. Then when I restarted it, the car was in perfect condition, like it never happened. But while it was happening, I really thought the car was going to die on me.
