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 button to start and start the vehicle is right next to the radio button. Both buttons are pushed to turn them on and off. I accidentally hit the engine start button instead of the radio button, all power to the vehicle was turned off, complete loss of power steering, brakes and engine. In order to restart I had to come to a complete stop, put the vehicle in park and then restart the vehicle, had this occurred at any speed other than the very low speed I was going, it would have likely caused a major accident. I strongly feel that this is a major safety issue and at a minimum need to have the vehicle reprogrammed to prevent it from being turned off while the vehicle is moving.
