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.

While driving a light on the dash illuminated and the vehicle suddenly lost power. The vehicle had a sensor issue which caused the panel light to flash and the power to be lost. The panel light flashed twice and stayed on the second time. The consumer was told it was an emission light and there was no other explanation. The consumer tried to have the vehicle jump started but it did not start the vehicle. The consumer was given a choice to take another vehicle same make and model as an exchange for her purchased vehicle that failed. The clock did not keep time and the light switch did not turn on the interior lights. The consumer was told that the clock for the second vehicle was on back order. The clock has to be reset every time the consumer gets in the vehicle.
