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.

Consumer states: All of a sudden vehicle died when making a turn in traffic, no lights came on, it just died. Dealer couldn't find anything wrong the first time 4/14/05 but then they called back had us come in, and they flashed the computer on 4/15/05, and then had us bring it back and flashed again on 4/25/05. Then it happened on 5/6/05 and 5/7/05 and damler-Chrysler had dealer change map sensor on 5/10/05.
