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.

This is the second time that this incident has happened. While driving home from work near the intersection of fresh pond road and myrtle avenue, my Lexus shut off completely. The message on the dashboard was "check hybrid system". same incident happened Dec 2012. According to Lexus the problem the first time was the hybrid system. I haven't been to the Lexus dealer yet but this is the second time that I got lucky without seriously injuring myself and other drivers.
