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 has stalled numorus times in traffic. At city speeds and highway speeds, even in the fast lane at rush hour.have you ever seen a semi that is tailgating try to stop at sixty-five in your rearview mirror because your engine just stalled" I fear for my life every time the dealer calls and say's come pick it up I think we got it fixed? how can they send me out with a vehicle that they dont even know if its fixed? when they can't even find out what is causing it to happen" it's been in the shop eight times for stalling. They replace a part and send me out on the road like a test rat hoping the brand new car I bought keeps running so I don't die or worse cause someone else to. They have checked the wiring, computers, engine, even duplicated the problem.how do I ever feel like I can drive this car safley. I have no choice because the big car company dont care for me. It's sales they care about. It's been at the dealership for six days now, no problem I'll send my payment in even though it's been in the shop for about thirty days the last four months.
