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 the vehicle and coming to a stop, the car will cut-off without warning. Also, driving down the road it will skip/pull back and keep moving while driving 55/70 mph. It's been in the shop four (4) times and they can't find the problem. Nothing happens until I drive it home and the problem occurs again. Has anyone else complained about this problem?
