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 gave resistance starting around April 2009, less then one year after I have the fuel pump replaced at the cost of $1000 CAD. I took it to Midas as soon as this started to happen in april, and the car was not acting up for them so they could not diagnose the propblem. THis continued to happen again and agian. After it would rain or sometimes after a short trip(5-10m Min). At one point in August, I took it back to Midas during an oil change, and complained again of the resistance starting. They did some tests and found that the fuel pressure would drop so long after running the engine. They replaced the fuel pump agian. This time it was covered under the NAPA warrenty so it did not cost me any thing.
