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.

While driving in stop and go traffic on the freeway, the vehicle stalls unexpectedly, followed by a message to 'stop safely now'. after several minutes of attempting to restart, the vehicle restarts and is able to driven again normally. This has occurred to me three times so far, without warning and does not seem to be any common pattern that is causing the stalls.
