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.

problem #1

Well I've had various problems with this car since I bought it at 130k 4 months ago and this is the latest problem. I was driving to work and I was almost there when all of a sudden I couldn't accelerate. I was forced to steer off the road with whatever forward movement I had. I had two men pull over to help me and they even couldn't get the car to work so they helped me push it all the way off the road, thank goodness. I get it towed to my mechanic and guess what, it works perfectly for him. Fortunately he believed and checked the whole car out for me with no results. Nothing wrong with the car at all.

If anyone has any idea at all please, please. let me know. I need to get this car passes for inspection but I'd rather not spend anymore money than I need to on existing problems if it's something like the transmission going or something else really expensive. I'd appreciate it if you could at least give a guess so I can have my mechanics check it out for me.
