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 contact states when trying to start vehicle it starts shaking. The service dealer states that this is an intermittent problem, and there is a technical service bulletin. The consumer states when the vehicle does this after approximately 35 minutes the vehicle will start back. The service dealer replaced the relay switch. But after a week the problem recurred. The manufacturer referred the consumer to the better business bureau.
