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.

problem #2

Rendezvous 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 19,980 miles


: the contact stated while decelerating from 30 mph, the engine stalled. The vehicle was restarted immediately, and taken to a service dealer. The dealer replaced the ignition relay and performed a fuel card cleaning, however the problem persisted. The dealer was unable to determine the cause of the problem.

Rendezvous 6-cyl

While backing our of my driveway the vehicle started vibrating due to engine ignition malfunction but did not stall. At the same time dashboard light went on indicating that engine needed an oil change though the oil was just changed 2 days prior to the incident. Shut the engine off and restarted and engine operated normally except the dashboard light again indicated need for an oil change. Brought the vehicle back to the dealer for repair. After discussion with service representative it was decided to install ignition relay part for the second time. A scan system test regulator test was done with no problem found. Will continue to run vehicle and hope problem corrected.
