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.

  • 25 miles
Purchased the car, drove it up a hill had a terrible egg smell seems to be every time I go up a hill. Took it back to the dealer they said it was the gas I was using. Took it to another garage and they say it the catalytic converter needs to be replaced. The dealer won't do anything the smell is very embarrassing. We bought this for a family car now no one wants to ride in it. Maybe that's why it's a 2001 and only has 12,000 miles on it.
