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.

Just how good are the diagnostic computers? The garage changed the spark plugs and Ht leads which appeared to have fixed the fault. The also sped up the idling so that the car was less likely to stall. The frequency of stalling has reduced but still happens usually when decelerating to a stop at roundabouts. I feel that there is some piece of electronics that is still mis functioning
