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.

Car shut off at traffic light, after spitting and sputtering. Was almost rearended. Seems worse when car is cold, but still spits and sputters after engine is warm. Engine check light is on steady. Gas cap is on fine. I will wait for tank of gas to finish and get another to see if there was problems with the gas. If that doesn't work, will take it to bennett Chevrolet, my dealership,
