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.

Had had rough idle for a while. Was told it was head gasket (by dealer). Mechanic 2 said no, it wasn't. Trusted mechanic 3 fixed the problem: loose tensioner. Had 60,000 mile service re-done for $1200 -- including replacing tensioner & belt. (Car was at about 75k miles.) Car runs basically fine now.
