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.

This is the second time in this truck's life that the crank sensor's been replaced-first was under warranty and this time cost $286. The motor would die randomly (usually at low speed, like in traffic) and leave the driver with no steering or brakes until restarted which took lengthy cranking. Why does this vehicle keep needing these sensors replaced?
