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.

All power accessories including pw, pl, lighter, radio, and all exterior lights, shut-off and usually after a minute turn back on and the vehicle jerks into gear at low speeds and slams into gear at high speeds, taking the speed of the vehicle from 100K to 60K in a millisecond.
