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.

Vehicle fails to accelerate properly, especially when accelerating rapidly. Vehicle exhibits exact same problems as in NHTSA recall # 15V-089 and manufacturer recall #SC115. The manufacture date for the automobile on the door sticker is February 16, 2015 -- which is not in the original recall dates for the above mentioned recalls.
