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.

A light comes on the dashboard that looks like the one that comes on when you're low on gas. It flashes and dings and after a few minutes the car stops running and won't start up until it sits for a long time. When it first happened I was driving on an expressway and it conked out on a hill obstructing traffic, embarrassing as hell, not to mention dangerous with 18-wheelers flying by. This didn't happen when I first bought the van from this person but I have only had it for 2 weeks, the problem seemed to start after I filled the tank with gas, which could just be a coincidence, but I need to know what's going on before the Lemon Law warranty is up. Please please please help
