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.

problem #2

Nov 152003

MPV 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 74,250 miles


Check engine light on repeatedly( at least 15 times in the past 12 months with the same 4 or 5 codes) car jerks when idling. Replaced O2 sensors, manifold gaskets(2), spark plugs and wires, top engine clean, many times the light was just reset. It was under warranty the first time it went in but even though it is the same thing over and over it is not covered. Dealer said they didn't know what was wrong with it. I could leave it there and maybe they could find something. November, 2003 to December 2003 was at the dealers for "12" different times that the light came on. This November it has started all over again. Do not have the old parts.

Terrible rotten egg smell coming inside the car as well at the exhaust pipe. Occurred since new, actually it has 11000 miles. Complain submitted to dealer and they denied responsibility and gave me service bulletin no 01-029/02 blaming to "high amounts of sulfur on fuel", smell causes nausea.
