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.

If anyone can help me, it drives me crazy. I am OK in the winter time, however first sign of using AC the car starts jerking and stalling. Never stalled when driving but I am afraid it will happen soon. Dealer did not help nor several different mechanics.
