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.

Each time this car has this problem, it is towed to the garage. Once at the garage, the mechanics cannot diagnose the problem because all of a sudden, the car starts and runs well. This has happened 5 times. It could be electrical, mechanical, or something to do with the gas line. The dealership cannot pinpoint the problem because the problem always goes away when the car is towed or is left to sit for a few days.
