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.

Traveling East on I 180, in left lane ready to turn onto I 80 East, took cruise control off and a loud revving noise occurred, engine shut down. Safely, through built up momentum was able to move across highway to berm off of right lane. Initially thought it might be transmission. Was towed to garage and after initial check, they thought it was a shifting rod. Transmission was removed from car and further testing showed it was the "torque converter". part has been ordered, waiting till part comes in and can be replaced in car. If highway had not been clear behind us at the time of this incident, all 3 passengers in the van would have been killed by oncoming tractor trailers, etc. It was a very stressful moment for all of us.
