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.

Every morning when I turn on my car in cold weather I get the error message "power assembly fault" and an indicator that traction control is shut off. When this happens I no longer have power steering or traction control. This clears up once I warm up the engine and turn the car off and on. It happens every morning now that we are in colder weather and clears up once I heat up the car so it seems that these electronic components become faulty at 30-40 degree Fahrenheit weather.
