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.

The vehicle will shut down starting with air conditioner. Then a warning light will come on, system theft service. And the rest of the vehicle will follow. Consumer could not even get the key out of the ignition or turn it when it does this. The consumer was able to get the vehicle to pull to the side of the highway because she knew that when the air condition starts failing, it will shut down. Will have to wait at least 25-30 minutes before it will start again. The first time this happened the dealership replaced the computer. The second time they replaced computer again. The third time they changed the module. Consumer was not entirely sure of all the work the dealership did. There were no other known problems with the vehicle at this time. Everything that the dealership has done to try to repair the problem has not helped. Consumer contacted the manufacturer, they told consumer that they would reimburse her for what she paid. The replacements were done under warranty. The consumer did not want the vehicle since she felt it was unsafe.
