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.

Car started to hesitate and it didn't seem to be getting gas, especially up hills. I wasn't sure it would make it and was going about 10 mph. Took it in and they couldn't find anything. Kept happening till it died on a hill. Had it towed and they couldn't find anything. Stopped at my local repair center and asked them and they said it sounded like possibly bad coils and/or spark plugs. Took it to the dealer again and asked them to check that. They did find 5 bad ones and replaced. Started happening again last year and was going to take it in for service but my son-in-law said he would look at it. Found they replaced the 5 coils and sparks with cheaper versions and not the ones called for in the owner's manual. He got the authorized parts and replaced them for me.
