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.

I was slowing down at a merge point, when vehicle "stalled". I and dealer worker could not restart for 45 minutes, at which time it finally started. Drove to dealership, checked out briefly, seemed ok. Drove it again less than a mile, and for 2nd time, again stalled for approx. 45 min. Car couldn't be started. Finally car responded and drove 2nd time to dealer, where it was left for analysis and possible repair. Car purchased Aug. 30 2011, incident Sept. 1, beginning 7-8am. Car is now in dealer's hands for possible repair. Chevrolet Volt hybrid extremely dangerous situation if car stalls in major intersection or at high speed on highway. Defective component battery, engine, computer??
