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 traveling at approximately 45mph and decreasing speed, the engine and all power steering and power brakes ceased at about 40mph while braking. This has happened twice. First time was sometime in September of last year (2001).

Engine management system shutdown on highway. Power steering was lost. Had to restart (crank) engine while car was still rolling. Following days, on-board computer would reset randomly (average twice a day) with all the dials swinging to the right (fully clockwise) and the radio/cd switches on & off randomly (3-4 times a day)
