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.

Pre-owned by 1 person. Had car for only 3 yrs, engine light, battery light, oil light, always off and on. Shuts off while driving. I've been to several repair shops no one knows the problem. Previous owner and I were up to date with repair. Previous owner and I were up to date with repair ONLY 66,000 miles. WHAT THE HELL.

We bought this car used from a private citizen. Car was in good shape, etc. we test drove it, seemed excellent. Two days later, the oil light came on. We had the car checked, we were told nothing was wrong, but since there had been a tune up, we would need to take it to the dealership to have the car adjusted. First thing to go out was the power steering, we had that fixed, no problems. We changed the oil. Oil light and engine light continuued to come on. This just became annoying, since there was nothing wrong, we checked it each day, figured it was the sensors fouled up.
