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.

Not the first time either! After losing 2 cylinders to this problem, each costing $1,500 to get fixed, the third one is now down. The car goes in for regular maintanence, but they claim it's not a manufacturer's defect and won't cover it under warranty. Also recently spent $1,000 to get the car fixed from another engine problem just 6 months ago. Why do they not find the problems before hand? stupid stealerships
