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.

At left turn before incoming cars be too close turned accelerating. Half way with steering wheel harding, it shuts off. I had to put on brak and turn car on to back carefully. Turned in and stopped to check. For past year with every shut off either starts or not, I had fixed at car dealer. Huffines is the car dealer with all records.
