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 #2

S-10 Pickup 6-cyl

  • 55,034 miles


While traveling on I85 at 70 mph in the far left lane passing a car I hit the rumble strips on the shoulder and the truck lost all power. I was able to move to the shoulder on the right side of the road. Thinking I would not be able to restart the car to my surprise the car started back and I took off. I forgot about this until I recently heard of recent recalls.
