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.

problem #1

Nov 152002


  • Manual transmission
  • 11,902 miles
All were warranty repairs. The ignition coil went out first. Then the catalytic converter. The body was just a minor thing, a rain rail came loose, and it had to be replaced. Finally, the car caught fire on 09-02-03 and it is totally. I only had it two yrs. And it only had 31,000 miles on it. It has a history of stalling out on trips of 30 miles or more, it would restart soon though. Car is a total loss.
