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.

Intermittently while driving engine shut off followed by the meters on the dashboard reading zero. Then, vehicle stalled. The consumer put vehicle into neutral and restarted. When this happened before lost control of vehicle. The dealership performed several diagnostic tests, and replaced the PCM ground/engine ground, and wiring going to the PCM. The failure still existed. The consumer invoked the lemon law because the dealership was unable to rectify the failure. Consumer advised that the engine stalled and resulted in the vehicle leaving the roadway. The vehicle entered the front yard of home and damaged the lawn.
