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.

The damn car keeps loosing power-feels like down shifting, and if driven long enough engine dies. The weird thing is the car runs like a dream when it's cool but after about a half hour or so of driving, when the engine is warmer, it starts acting up, although the engine is not overly hot.
