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.

When in speed control at 55 mph after a long down hill the cruise control will sometimes cause the engine to stall. This occurs while the vehicle is still traveling at 20-30mph. The result is loss of steering control and power brakes. The engine can be restarted immediately. Reported problem to selling dealer on about 11 November 2003. No action taken. Reported problem to service dealer on approximately 15 Feb 2004. Updated rom. Reported problem again to service dealer on 19 March 2004. Re-flashed rom. Otherwise no action taken.
