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.

Vehicle had just entered atlanta Georgia on I85 southbound. There was very heavy stop and go traffic. Upon light acceleration, the engine lost power. The engine never stalled. The idle remained smooth. In neutral the engine would accelerate normally. In drive (all gears) and reverse, the engine would accelerate to about 900 RPM and then lose power. We were able to drive along the shoulder at a slow walking pace (a slight incline) until we encountered a disabled vehicle. The van did not have the power to pull into the stop and go traffic. A tow truck was called and the van towed to a dealership for repairs. No check engine light and the engine restarted normally. The engine never ran rough and all the fluids looked good and were at correct levels. The dealership determined that the fuel pump was the problem since they measured the pressure at 40 psi and the specification was 53 psi. The fuel pump and filter was repaired at a cost of $686 plus towing. The powertrain warranty apparently does not cover these items. The replaced parts were not made available to us. After pickup from the dealership the van has intermittently experienced a pronounced hesitation accelerating from a stop. No check engine light. The van duplicated the same failure again on 12/30/06. We had just pulled out from a parking space at a restaurant. Every aspect of the incident was the same even to our proceeding to drive down the shoulder. Except in this case the shoulder was a slight decline. When the van made it to about 5 mph the problem disappeared and the van drove fine for the remaining 95 miles of our trip. The next time that the van was started it went straight to another dealership for repair. The dealership could not find anything wrong with the van but charged a estimate fee and said to bring it back when it was experiencing the problem. There were no trouble codes set for them to diagnose the problem and the van behaved fine during the test drive.

The car is 3 years old and we have had significant repairs. The air conditioning condenser failed at 56,000 miles. This year we repeatedly had to take the van in for the engine light. The light will come on for a few days and go off without intervention. At first we were told there was no issue. We brought it in again and were told the fuel pump was leaking and the #5 cylinder was misfiring. Not a week later after the repairs, the engine light came on again. This time, we were told that one of the fuel injectors was malfunctioning. This is the worst service record I have ever experienced.

Consumer brought vehicle in because the engine light had illuminated. The cause was a leak in the pump.
