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 stabilizer, traction control and the engine light seems to appear while driving. The power of the engine slows down tremendous barely able to accelerate. This seems to happen rather I'm driving on the streets or highway driving. The problem comes and goes.

The contact owns a 2013 Chevrolet Captiva. The contact stated that while driving at approximately 45 mph, the vehicle reduced power independently to 20 mph as the stability tracker and the engine power warning lights illuminated. The contact took the vehicle to the dealer where it was diagnosed that the throttle body and the fuel injector needed to be replaced. It was unknown if the vehicle was repaired but the failure recurred. The manufacturer was notified of the failure. The failure mileage was approximately 83,000.
