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.

I was making a right turn out of a shopping plaza onto a main highway when the traction control engaged because of fresh wet roads, a loud boom came from the passenger side front. Right after the boom the SUV revved up and the SUV had total loss of power and wouldn't move forward at all. I coasted to the side of the road. I put the SUV in park, shut it off. After restarted SUV had full working power with drive and reverse5X. Vehicle is now at dealer for inspection for damage/(safety).
