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.

Consumes one quart of oil per 400 miles. We have always had the oil changed every 3000 miles at the Isuzu dealer, because the vehicle was under the ten year/ 100,000 mile warrenty. This is my wifes' vehicle so she maintained the oil level. As it neared the 120,000 mile mark, it seemed to be using more and more oil. I'm trying the 0w-40 mobil1 oil to see if the oil consumption goes down, since I've read that the problem might be dirty piston oil control rings.
