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 was driving onto the entrance to the expressway and my car would not pick up speed. It started hesitating and would not pick up speed, the ESC light came on and started blinking as well as the etc light came on. I immediately got off the expressway at the next exit when I came to a stop, the car stalled and cut off I could have been rear ended I put my flashers on and started the car it started but it was still hesitating I pulled over in a car parking lot and turned it off I turned it back on again and drove home slowly and made an appointment to the car dealership the lights did not come back on I feel very very unsafe driving this car.
