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 #2

  • 18,000 miles


Started car after sitting in parking lot for 8 hours and the traction control warning light stayed on. Tried restarting the car several times but the warning would not clear. Drove car home less than 10 miles with both steering and acceleration considerably affected. The car pulled hard to the right then the left while driving on the highway and was difficult to keep in lane. Acceleration felt like the brakes were being applied which made the car very sluggish to drive. Parked the car at home overnight and the warning cleared itself the next day. Took the car straight in to the dealership who claimed they could find any codes pertaining to the problem and was told to bring the car back if it happens again.

Azera 6-cyl

  • 2,250 miles
I was driving from a parking lot, stopped at a few stopped signs and traffic lights, and when entering a highway at about 30 mph, I noticed the car would not speed up beyond the speed I was driving. The engine would not rev up more than 1.5K - 2krpm. I pulled over to the side. Stopped the engine and restarted. I was able to move the car but it would not speed up to more than roughly 10 mph. I had to pull to the side again since there were vehicle approaching behind me. I tried to restart the 3rd time, and the engine started up with some hesitation. After making sure I could get the engine to rev up to more than 5krpm, I pull out and was able to drive the car. No engine check code was displayed.
