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.

On this date it was the second occurrence when my 2005 Dodge Caravan lost power while I was driving down the street at about 30 miles an hour. I was able to pull over safely and immediately restarted the car. But I had no power steering or brakes. I took it to the car dealer since it happened a second time and I no longer considered it a fluke. They ran a diagnostic test and no sensor or computer recorded anything. So they told me it could be one of a thousand reasons the computer turned off the car and wait until it happened more frequently so the sensor will register it. Then if it happens more frequently they will be able to trace it. However, I am driving a car with only 10,000 miles on it that at any moment could simply stop running. I am very concerned about being rear ended by cars that don't expect a car to simply stop on the road. Also, I travel up and down a hill every day to home and back. How am I supposed to stop it without brakes? I consider this to be an accident waiting to happen. Fortunately, I was in a turn lane and no one was following right behind me the first two times.

I have had a miss fire from the engine since I bought it. Taken it back to the dealer for service and had the PCM reprogramed, trans serviced and still the problem persists. Now the check engine light is on again and the trouble code are saying bad plug-wire or coil pack. Last time it went in they said it was a bad plug and wire on cyl. 4.
