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.

2001 Chevrolet S10. The contact stated the vehicle will not start immediately when it was damp. It took a long time for vehicle to start. The vehicle was taken to a mechanic, and they could not find what was wrong with the vehicle. A recall was issued, but this vehicle was not included, no information was available. This has been happening for three weeks. The battery and battery cable have been checked.

While driving 45 mph vehicle stalled without prior warning. Dealer said there was a short in the wiring harness, had blown 2 fuses. Dealer rerouted the wiring harness so that it would not get as hot, stating that the vehicle would not likely stall again.
