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.

Every since I bought the SUV it has been losing oil constantly there is no leaks and the dealer wants me to do numerous test that I have to pay for but this still not be able to tell me the problem. It also like others slips when raining outside and even worse when its snowing. Another reoccurrence is its accelerates to much when I press the gas it turned the corner and it accelerated nearly causing the vehicle to flip over. Now my check engine came on and a foul odor came out of no where im going to take it to the dealer tomorrow.

While driving at any speed, the vehicle intermittently stalls out with out any warning. This causes the loss of steering, and brake equipment. This incident happened six times in the last two weeks. The dealer and the manufacturer have been notified of the problem.
