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.

Spark 4-cyl

  • 39,336 miles
Engine lost power on the highway when I was going 65 miles per hr, luckily I was on the right lane and was able to pull safety on the shoulder and did not have any accident. But I am afraid to drive my car and this car is only 2 years old. Find out from other owners complains that engine lose power is cause because of excessive oil usage by the engine. I had this problem since February 2014 but I was told by dealer that there is no visible oil leakage., I do not believe engine was checked for that problem.
