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.

When driving over 55mph speedometer would go haywire & drop down to 30mph when I was still driving 55-70, after a short while would go back to correct speed. Speedometer now stuck at zero and odometer has quit working also. The RPM's are also fluctuating badly and the engine will surge and then drag. Not sure if transmission is bad or if it's electrical?? Just fixed 2 coolants leaks less than 2 weeks ago.
