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.

While driving at any speed or sitting idle reduce power light comes on and vehicle slows down. This is very dangerous and frustrating. I've been to three dealers, and the dealer is there to deal in other words make money even if they don't fix the problems. Not to mention trying there best to get you to trade your problem car in and buy a new car.

The ABS light comes on and brakes go to the floor with minimum to no stopping power. When this happens the brakes wine. After this happens brakes return to normal but the ABS light comes on and stays on until the vehicle is cycled on/off. Once the computer sees that there is no issues with the ABS, the light goes off. This leaves you to believe that there was a "bug" in the electronics. Then without warning or a duration of time the problem comes back. And then this process starts all over again. Whats happens when I need the brakes to prevent a accident? after researching online this is a very common issue with this vehicle.
