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.

My husband replaced all the coils and spark plugs himself shortly after purchasing Jan 2014 at 105k miles. This required the special $100 removal tool since they are well known for breaking off in the engine. : / So 18 months later (max), the engine starts running progressively rougher on a 30 minute drive. By the time I get there it's running really rough and the light is on. When I go to leave it's still rough and gets bad enough that I call my husband to come get us from work because I don't feel safe driving home. He stops at O'Reilly on the way home and it's a cylinder 2 misfire. Can't figure it's the new coils he just installed he looks into other options... finally pulls #2 spark plug and it's broken. Installs and new one and the problem is fixed (for a few months that is...)

Spark plug #2 is misfiring. I have talked to a few auto mechanics, they all said this is an ongoing problem. There needs to be a recall on these vehicals. I am going to try to get the Dealer I bought the car from to fix it.
