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.

My engine light has turned on and the reading says it's cylinder #2 misfire. It came out of no where and from what I've seen and heard it is a common issue. My car is basically brand new and very well taken care of but it has needed every recall and for some reason something this serious and common is not covered. It shakes while it idles it's not running great and this could bring on many more problems.

I can hear a very loud knocking noise in the dash behind my instrument panel. It starts each time that I turn on the heater, the ac and defroster. This loud knocking sounds continues even when my car is turned off. Also there's flaking noises in my engine/transmission- my car is under 35K miles.

  • 12,000 miles
Attempt was made to accelerate from 60mph, to pass another vehicle. The accelerator was depressed and the engine immediately slowed, resulting in the vehicle's speed being reduced to a crawl causing potential harm from approaching vehicular traffic. Vehicle was not able to resume speed for several seconds even while the accelerator was being depressed. There were several close encounters with approaching traffic until the vehicle was able to resume speed. This occurred following a visit to the dealership to describe prior incidents. The dealer "updated" the computer but were not able to give a reason for the occurrence or verify if the condition was corrected.... obviously it was not. Where does one go from here other than to report it on this site?
