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.

While traveling on the highway and without prior warning, the vehicle will lose power and shut down. Dealership is aware of the problem. Consumer states that if you have driven this vehicle until it is warmed up and or have in hot weather, and shut it off, or idle for some time, and try to start it back up, the temperature of the engine has risen and the clutch fan kicks in, if a person accelerates, the engine will lose a lot of power.
