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.

Park Avenue

  • miles


While driving at approximately 25-35mph vehicle would stall out. Would have no prior warning. Nearly rearended. Need to shift into neutral to restart. An intermittent problem. Took to dealership & mechanic placed a monitor on vehicle. Nothing happened. Was road tested & battery died. Found a short in battery & it was changed. The vehicle finally stalled again while at stop light.
