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 car suddenly lost the power to accelerate. Now it goes 0 to 20 in 2 minutes, and it won't go faster than 40 mph! When stopped at a light the car shakes like an old washing machine and makes a horrible noise. We took it to a repair guy and we've been told that the engine is finished (the horrible sound does seem to come from the engine block).
