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.

My vehicle I purchases fro the dealer was supposedly in excellent shape. Not until I moved to los angeles, ca. I realized that the engine was not performing correctly. The engine is to drop down from a 8cycl to a 6cycl when it is in overdrive (60+mph). (this is called 'active fuel management system.) my engine would not due that. I took it to several dealers but they refused to fix the problem. Dealer said "it wasn't their fault. We bought this car from an auction". I feel their was something wrong with the car. Dealer inspection checklist was dated 3/26/2008. The car was a rental vehicle prior to me purchasing it as a used vehicle. The odometer reading was 12410 on 5/17/2008. I feel their was a problem with the engine "safety".

Whenever the outside temperature drops below approx 20 degrees F and the vehicle is parked overnight, the factory remote starter and the keyless entry systems don't function unless I hold the transmitter directly above the hood of the vehicle. In warmer weather, the system works from distances greater than 50 feet. It has been to the dealer 3 times for the problem already and the problem still exists. Thus far, the 2 transmitters and the receiver have been replaced.
