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.

Ok, this is both a pain in the ass and embarrassing...the car WILL turn over, but it takes forever to start it...it's embarrassing to have to sit there and cycle the key from off to on 3+ times...it's a fuel pump problem and it's not really worth the $$$ to fix it
