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.

First after numerous attempts of putting unit on diagnostic system. It was determined - will first the computer could not read my codes; then my mechanic determined it was from the fuel sensor. Check engine light is on. Replaced fuel pump for $450 and check engine light still on and fuel gauge is inoperable. I can not pass inspection due to my engine light is on. Car drive good however having theses issues; next mechanic tries to locate 06 car book. Locally here they are not sold and it's quite difficult to locate 06 Isuzu Ascender car book. Then with dealership guidance they determined its electrical. My computer is misfiring incorrect data to systems. Dealership nor mechanic can find parts because parts are very hard to find as this unit is no longer made. It is now April 2012 and I am still without car and still mechanic is still unable to locate sufficient parts to fixed the issues. This is exhausting. The car will not pass inspection. This is just a nightmare...
