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.

Sporadically, from hwy speed of 55 mph to off ramp, when clutch is fully depressed, engine dies (all dash indicators light up) and RPM goes to zero, resulting is loss of power steering (and probably power brakes). Driver is able to restart engine with clutch in coasting in neutral. Sometimes, engine dies again right away. Car is not out of gas.
