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.

Changed every item associated with fueling system as advised, then card drove for 10 minuts and shut off. Then was told spark plugs... changed, then told relay...changed, then told computer.......nothing resolved. Well over $2k later now it is a wiring problem. Why was this not considered a big enough safety issue to be recalled by the company, shutting down in the middle of traffic during rush hour with kids in the car is a for sure recall reason.
