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.

In addition, the traction and the ABS warning lights illuminated. The vehicle was taken to the dealer, but the failure was unable to be determined. The vehicle was not repaired. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure. The failure mileage was 22,000.... updated 06-02-15

Captiva 4-cyl

  • 14,000 miles
Rented the Captiva from enterprise at jacksonville, fl, airport. Engine had clattered a bit at slow speeds but not on highway. On third and last day we were driving away after a traffic light had turned green and the engine just stopped working. The car turned off. I put on the hazard lights and turned into right lane, then into a parking lot that luckily happened to be next to it. All the cars around us were moving slowly - again, luckily - because they had been stopped at the traffic light. I lost the power in steering and also the brakes. I did not knock against the keys in the ignition and I could think of nothing unusual that happened before the engine just failed.
