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.

When I start my vehicle it does not start and I can not pull the key out of the ignition after a couple of seconds of leaving the key alone the vehicle starts on its on. The vehicle was taken to the dealer three times however; the technician was unable to diagnose the failure. I was told it would have to do it for them in order for them to figure out the problem. I asked the dealer to document the issue that my vehicle is having because it was close to my warranty to be over. Please investigate issue!!!!
