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.

While accelerating from an on-ramp to a highway, an alert popped up: Drivetrain malfunction: Drive moderately..." the car lost power and I was nearly rear-ended and nearly caused a multiple car accident on the freeway. I was able to get the car to the side of the road during heavy traffic. I turned the car off, opened the hood and looked inside. Nothing seemed amiss. Restarted the car and the yellow alert was gone. Proceeded to get back on the highway and accelerated again and again the alert popped up and I lost power and again nearly caused an accident. This is a very dangerous malfunction that seems to be occurring with high frequency. Please look into this as government intervention may save lives.
