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.

After two weeks of purchase, the vehicle went into neutral mode with the gear shift still in drive without warning. The consumer coasted the vehicle to the side of the road. On a separate occasion, the power steering failed and became difficult to operate for directional control twice. On both items the dealership was unable to duplicate the problem. The consumer was told there was a 9/1/04 recall notice to reprogram this model vehicle. The consumer was told that his vehicle was not during this recall period.
