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.

Starting aroung 37,500 I've had 8 failures while driving car cuts off and I had to turn ignition off and on for car to worked right at the time I did not realized it was a transmission problem. Today 9/10/2007 had car checked out and sevice technician advised to replace mechtronic valve body replace for a cost of $1,900 I declined. I advised service rep to reprogrammed PCM to latest calibration. Updated 01-14-08. Updated 12/12/07.
