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 65 mph westbound on interstate 195 in New Jersey the engine turned off. It lost all power and the instruments all went off. Engine would not restart while the car was rolling. I pulled off road to a complete stop. Was able to restart engine when stopped. Continued trip. Looked like a complete loss of the electrical system. The computer board had been replaced 9 months ago because of a different problem.
