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.

While on a trip to Arizona I rented a car from hertz. I was driving from sedona to phoenix on I17 when the engine lost power and stopped suddenly. At the time I was passing in the left lane on a grade of about 15 degrees at 70mph. The engine stopped because the fuel shut off switch in the trunk cut off fuel to the engine. I had to pull over to the shoulder of the road, open the trunk and press a red button to proceed. Apparently this is a common enough problem with Ford automobiles that hertz printed a phamplet describing the problem and resolution. This is a dangerous condition. The unexpected shut-down of an engine could cause an accident.
