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.

The consumer stated the 2001 GMC Jimmy was losing power while driving. The vehicle speed varied. The vehicle will not accelerate. This has been a problem since 2003. The vehicle has been in the shop eight times for repairs. The dealership could not find what the problem was. The dealer test drove, scanned and looked through manuals trying to find the cause of the problem. The consumer called the manufacturer, who gave her a card so that she would not have to pay for the expenses.
