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 stalls without warning, typically when attempting to propel forward from a stop, but has also occurred more rarely at highway speeds. The electronic stability control and electronic throttle lights come on, power steering and brakes are affected as well. Vehicle must be turned off and restarted. Happened frequently prior to the recall fix, stopped for a period of time, and has now resumed worse than ever. So, so dangerous as I desperately fear being rear ended or T-boned if this occurs when pulling out in traffic, particularly when young children are in the vehicle. This seems to be an extremely common concern based on the complaints and needs to be resolved before someone is seriously injured or worse. Brought vehicle to dealer two weeks ago to repair, they could not replicate and no repair was completed. If you're reading this because you have a similar issue, please document it so that we can bring as much attention to this as possible in order to incite action.

After driving for about 30 minutes, TPMS system started to malfunction. The tires showed proper inflation (later verified manually) when the warning light appeared and the each tire one by one changed from the 38 to -- separated by about 3 or 4 seconds. After stopping to manually check tire pressure which was appropriate, I then restarted the vehicle and TPMS once again showed tire pressures.

My van will sometimes not start the first time I turn the key, I may have to move the gear shift, or just turn it off and back on. It has stalled on me 4 times over the last 3 months, once going 65 mph, I suddenly lost power. I took it to our mechanic, they said the starter connections were a little corroded so they cleaned them and he changed the spark plugs. The first time I tried starting it after getting it home it wouldn't start without turning the key off and on and it stalled in my driveway. I contacted the service center again, they replaced the relay, but wasn't sure that would fix the not starting problem. It didn't fix it. I have not had it stall again, but the stalling did not re- occur as often. I feel like the stalling is a real safety issue, I have very little confidence in the safety of my vehicle.

While driving (highway and city) the van will die. No power steering or power brakes. It will restart, but is extremely dangerous to be traveling down the highway or making a turn and have the vehicle die. I have began maintaining a log of when this happens...6 times in just over the course of a month. Now we are driving the vehicle only when absolutely needed and it still is die this often. There is a problem here.
