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.

I got this car off a dealer and all seemed fine for a few months... Then without reason it would completely shut off and every check light would flash, or at least the engine and oil, which led us to believe it was the fuel pump, as it was not starting either. When I took it into a mechanic they said there was no problem and it was giving off no codes. After a few months of annoyance and the car being driven until all it would do is die within a matter of moments, we took it back to the mechanic. The mechanic still couldn't find anything wrong with it until he drove it and it died on him! When he checked the codes again the computer wasn't giving anything... rather going beserk... All in all I had the computer fixed, which also fixed the fuel pump and now its running fine. A new computer is about 400 dollars but you can see if there is a junk yard to buy one for cheap.
