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 #3

Tracker 4WD 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

The timing chain broke-while driving 55 mph on 3 lane highway. The engine just stopped, no warning- as it stopped the check engine light went on. Was in slow lane and could coast to breakdown lane. Could have caused an accident.

Problems with vehicle shutting down when shifting and stopping. The vehicle would die when the consumers foot was taken off the gas. The vehicle would die when shifting and stopping. The dealer was unable to duplicate the problem. This would be a safety hazard when going down hills and curves.
