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.

I have had this car for only a year and it has a good motor and everything. A month ago i went to crank my car and it wouldn't start. It would turn over and over but would never crank. My bf messed around with the wires and fuses and it started right up.. so we thought it was a wiring problem. It was fine after that. Well its done it three times this past month (OCT) and the past 2 all he had to do was jiggle the wires and it would start right up. Well the last time it wouldn't start for 3 days.. and today i was feeling lucky and decided to try it and it started right up, no problem. cranked it 2 more times and made it home just fine. I am still taking it to a mechanic... but not sure if i can afford the cost... or if I'm gonna pay and it be fixed... any ideas?
