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.

Speedometer was operating erratically. Sometimes it worked fine, sometimes it raced from 0 to 120 mph, moving back and forth rapidly, and sometimes it rested on 0 mph while car was in motion. When stopped at stop sign and / or red light and while vehicle in gear, van sometimes stalled. Van often stalled when moving in reverse. Feared that vehicle would lose power at high speed, resulting in a collision. Dealer worked on van for one full day. Returned van claiming that problem was corrected; replaced output speed sensor. Within five minutes after leaving dealer, speedometer began moving erratically again. Vehicle has been with dealer for over one week. Dealer claimed that speedometer would not act up for them long enough to determine problem. Dealer wanted loner vehicle returned, butowner refused; not until problem was corrected. Vehicle purchased June 2001 and had less than 29000 miles when malfunction was noticed -- early October 2003.
