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.

No event leading up to failure. Engine just quit. No warning of any kind. Engine would quit and operator would have to wait before restarting. At one point the vehicle did not restart without the help of a dealership mechanic several dealerships replaced the fuel pump. Fuel pump replaced twice.
