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.

: the contact stated, when trying to start the vehicle, the engine turns over, runs for a few seconds, then shuts off. After a few minutes to an hour, the vehicle will restart and continue to run. The gauges on the instrument panel do not operate at times. The dealer can not determine the cause of the problem nor diagnostic testing has not registered any codes.
