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.

problem #1

  • miles
The computer system of the vehicle is broken down. The speedometer jumps from 0 mph to 120mph and never shows the correct speed. Airbag sign flickers and turns on and off at times. The gear stick jams on one mode and car starts stalling. Dealership doesn't want to accept it as a lemon car that is eating away our money. And wants thousands of dollars to fix the problem.
