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.

On two separate occasions while driving on the highway, call lost power and would not operate in a normal fashion. RPM gauge was highly erratic and pushing the accelerator to the floor did not result in increased speed. The first time I took it in, they said nothing was wrong with it. The 2nd time I had to have it towed, as it would no longer start. That time they told me it was a catastrophic engine failure caused by a spark plug.
