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.

1/30/03, engine check light came on, started running rough. Problem was crank sensor, it was replaced, it took 3 days, no part in stock. 1/21/05, engine check light came on again. I called the dealer service center, was asked if light was flashing, if not you can drive, if flashes bring in. Im out of warranty this needs to be fixed, it makes no sense. What happens in 2 years" will the same thing happen again" it will be in the shop on 1/23/05. I hope I don't have this problem again, we like to travel to Florida, I don't need a break-down like this on my way down there. Thank you for your help and consideration in this matter.
