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.

: the contact stated without warning the vehicle stalled, on five occasions. This happened while driving at no particular speed. The vehicle had to be pulled over and towed to the dealership. The final time, the dealership determined there was a rotor in the crankshaft sensor that was dented. The crankshaft sensor was replaced. Also, a puddle was noticed under the vehicle. The dealership determined there was a rupture in the power steering line and the line was replaced.
