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.

Car electrical intermittently goes out without warning, while moving or parked. Radio goes out, all dials go down to zero, power steering and brakes do not work. I have taken the car to the dealership on numerous occasions, mostly by tow-truck, to fix the problem. Dealer says they cannot duplicate the problem, installs co-Pilot, but car does not act up while it's installed. I have contacted DaimlerChrysler assistance center, but they say it's not their problem. My warrenty is almost up and I am afraid I won't have the money to take the car in anymore, this situation is severely dangerous, the car will come to a dead stop on the freeway or in the middle of an intersection, I have had a few close calls and am worried that I will get hurt, or worse.
