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 vehicle is in motion the gear indicator on the dash I will flash in and out. When the light goes out the vehicle will stall and when it comes back on the vehicle will rev up causing an unsafe speed. The ECM was replaced and two months later the problem still persists. The dealer cannot find anything wrong
