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.

I was coming home from work when the truck died while driving 55 miles an hour down the hwy. managed to get into turn lane it started back. then 10 miles down the road did it again. I thought perhaps I had some bad gas so I put premium in and it still did it. What scared me the most is the next day when coming home in died in the middle of a turn with oncoming traffic. I took the truck to the dealership and it is still there 3 months later. The mechanic thinks it is in the electrical but can't be sure. If anyone else has had this problem please contact me. I really need my truck fixed it is my only means of transportation. For now I've been bumming rides to work and the grocery store but I've noticed people are getting tired of me asking for a ride.
