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.

Had tried to start vehicle the 1st time & it failed to catch. Retried the 2nd time & finally caught. Weather was not a factor in starting vehicle. Had taken vehicle to dealer & mechanic replaced the battery. Also had fuel pump checked & replaced it. The new fuel pump terminal was broken & needed to be replaced. The computer chip was also replaced. In addition, PCV hose was not insulated & the windshield wiper washer was not working.
