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.

The truck went to limp mode for 3 sec then shut off. My son was driving and it shut of on a busy 4 lane road with nowhere to go, no power steering, brakes, no motor nothing. Let it be known and I am coping this letter. This could be very hazardous even deadly. I hope something is done before it kills someone or multiple people. The vehicle was in motion when it happend.
