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 hesitated, slowed down, lost power. Warning lights included stabilitrak off, traction control off, and reduced engine power. Repair was to clean throttle body. Jan of 2014, (83,000 miles) same problem occurred, and throttle body cleaned at dealer after diagnostics. March 1, 2014 (85000 miles) while on interstate 80 same warnings came on but I lost all engine power although the car was in gear and the car rpms would go up with pressing the gas petal, and semi almost hit me from behind. Car was brought to shoulder, stopped turned off and reset with restarting the engine.. I left the interstate and made a left turn, the car sputtered and hesitated, and oncoming traffic almost hit me. Reduced engine power warning then came on along with stabiltrak and traction control off messages. On the way to the dealer it occurred several times. And I had to restart the car after turning it off. The dealer stated that the throttle body had to be replaced. They had a 1 month wait time for the part? when I brought the car in January, the cars ahead and behind me had the same problem. A lady at the service counter also had the same problem. It is not a coincidence that 4 of us at the same time had that problem.
