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.

We have spent over $1100 so far trying to fix this problem and still not working. In the warmer weather, after the car has been driven for a while, if you let it sit for 1/2 hour - 1 hour, it won't start up. It tries to turn over but just won't connect. If you are patient enough (or have CAA tow it to the garage) then it will start. The last fix was change the computer chip - only at a cost of $800. The mechanic said this solved the problem. We gladly paid him, got into the car and guess what......it didn't start. So, still in the shop. Please, if someone knows the solution, let me know. There is only 115,000 kms. on this vehicle.
