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.

I paid to have the fuel pump replaced, since the dealer said that was the problem. The problem continues, after replacing the fuel pump twice, and is getting more frequent. It never happens at the dealer, but it has been happening on and off for the last two years. The car will run fine and out of the sudden, when trying to start it it will crank, but as soon as I remove the foot from the gas, stole out. than I have to way up to two hours to start it, and it will start as if nothing was ever wrong.
