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.

Sedona 6-cyl

While driving from the babysitter to my house on 07/19/2011 my car shut down while I was turning in a busy intersection. I was alone with my kids in the middle of the road while cars try to go around me after 3 minutes my car turned back on when I got home my stereo shut down and engine started making nose. I called the dealer spoke to a sales person who wanted me to come in for a trade in, spoke to jeff from the service department and he will call me back to schedule an appointment to come in. This is not the fist time I had a problem with the van stereo it's been changed before, door handles and other miscellanies work have been done, the grip from the back door is coming off.
