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 windows do not work and this problem keeps happening even after it was fixed, it wasn't the motor, switches or anything else, the wiring is bad somewhere and it went back out after the warranty expired. I hope this is a recall so something can get done and stay done.

1. ignition- Ms. Faulkner was transporting me to pick up my vehicle and her vehicle engine shut off just before she came to a stop. She stated that this had occurred on several occasions. The vehicle did not stall the day I drove it but when I stopped at a signal light the engine surged momentarily for approximately 3-4 seconds and then it returned to it"S normal idle. Had I not had the brake pedal engaged the vehicle would have surged forward 2. transmission " while driving on the interstate at speed limit and speed control set, upon resuming speed after coasting down a hill, there was a very distinct clunk that came from the transmission/transaxle. This same clunk occurred again at slow speeds when I slowing down for a signal.

Car stalls at least once a day while in traffic or at a red light. Ill be going about 20 mph and it stalls. This could cause an accident. Also it jerks when leaving a stop light or sign.
