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 owns a 2005 hound Tucson, while on cruise control it was too tight, causing the rpms to rev., the dealer repaired. Currently, while on cruise control it went out of the cruise control and the speed dropped rapidly. The service dealer stated they could not find the cause of the problem. This almost resulted in two accidents.
