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.

Stability system indicator/traction active/traction control indicator come on when making left hand turn sometimes vehicle stalls when accelerator is pressed and "traction active" will illuminate on the dic. Dealer stated that it was a "wheel hub sensor". replaced left wheel hub assembly, still have same issue. In work on replacing right hand wheel hub assembly to see if this corrects issue, but by the look of some of the other responses it will not. Need a recall if this is happening, possible life threatening situation if car stalls when turning through oncoming traffic.

We left the hotel in daytona beach and stopped for breakfast. We then were going to see the racetrack, after going about 3 miles the "engine coolant overheating" light came on. I immediately pulled into a Napa store and checked the coolant level which was normal. I changed the thermostat which didn't help so I changed the waterpump which didn't help.I had the car towed to a garage. On Monday the mechanic had pulled one head and the valves were warped. After discussing my options I had a new engine installed along with a radiator. The overheating happened so fast (3 miles ),there was no warning other than engine coolant overheating.there was no steam from the overflow so there must have been blockage in the motor.(my opinion).
