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.

The contact stated the engine stalled and died at highway speeds. When this occurred there was total loss of power. The vehicle would not restart. The vehicle had to be towed to a dealer. The dealer replaced the battery, alternator, and the power train control module. The dealer has been unable to accurately diagnose the problem. No further repairs have been made at this time.

The vehicle would shut down completely while in motion and the steering would lock. Also, the hazard lights would not come on. This was the third time this problem occurred in a ten month span. The first time this happened was on November 15, 2004, the second was March 23, 2005, and September 25, 2005. The consumer had taken the vehicle to the dealer twice, and they replaced the battery twice. There was no forewarning, noise and or warning lights. (11/21/05)
