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.

Engine started misfiring while on highway. Engine light came on and was blinking. I pulled off the road and had the car towed to dealer. The result is #6 and #8 are misfiring and also were told that 2 manifold bolts on right side of engine were broken off in engine body. If they cannot get the bolts to back off they will have to pull the head to drill them out on the inside.

Vehicle stops running. Engine dies happened four times, three times at 70 to 80 mph on 6 ln. Freeway have to try and steer and use brakes with no power. Once to the side of the road let sit for a few minutes and it starts up again. Have had it to the dealer and they say they have no idea what is wrong when they put on the computer. I feel that his is extremely dangerous! it could get us killed along with any one else close by that hits us.
