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.

I've had problems with the traction control system since the car was brand new! The first time I noticed it was during a snow storm. There was about an inch of snow on the road, and at first I thought "man, I'm glad I have traction control." Then, the system shut off. It's like it got confused.... It wouldn't come back on until I restarted the car, and no one was able to diagnose the problem. Ever. Now, nine years later, I'm still having a problem.
