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.

Just for the record-the mileage and speed of the incident is probably not accurate as I cannot remember exactly when the issue happened nor the mileage at that time. The vehicle is less than 3 years old and it started happening in 2013. Vehicle has always been sluggish, but since it was a 4 cylinder and I was used to a 6 cylinder, I just thought this was the difference in the 2 engine types. Vehicle started shaking when speeds of 50-60mph was reached in 2013. Took to dealer where I was told it needed new ball joints and throttle body. Got ball joints fixed but didn't have the $500-$600 dollars extra to spend to get throttle body fixed at that time. A family member offered to fix throttle body if I got the part for him. Went to 2 different autoparts stores to get the part and neither of them had it and the 2nd one told us that it was actually a recalled item on my vehicle to call the dealer. Called the dealer and was told it was not a recall item on my vehicle, and it would cost me $402 just for the part (the whole throttle body). Looked at this website and looking through the other's complaints about this vehicle, it seems they are all having throttle body issues too so I wonder why this isn't being looked into and considered a recall. For a car that isn't even 3 years old, I have had some major things go out on it and have been told by other mechanics that the issues I have had with this vehicle should not be happening on a car that is under 3 years old.
