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.

The contact took vehicle to a mechanic to have a coil pack replaced. The mechanic said he let the vehicle run for approximately 20 minutes then it was ready to be driven.. all of a sudden vehicle caught on fire under the hood. The fire department was called, they extinguished the fire. The cause of the fire was suspected to be electrical.

Every time I close the car door I recive a electrical shock.I have cloth seats I have asked more than 100 other Intrepid owners and they say the same thing (I work at a parking garage)my concern is for owners who have heart pacemakers and do not know what is happening.
