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.

Engine idles very rough. Car has stalled out twice this weekend while in reverse with no warning. Dealer has seen car today and said it cannot duplicate the problem so they have nothing to fix. My car has been in close to a dozen times in regards to the rough handling. Especially when A/C was on. Now it seems to have a problem while coming to a stop at a light...when you try to go the car seems like it isn't getting gas. Car dealer is unable to duplicate although my husband and friends have all noticed/experienced the rough feeling while driving (like it will just stall out...sort of sputters) I am very aggravated with my '01 Neon.
