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.

We bought this car used with a hundred thousand miles and learn this the hard way. I can't believe there's no major complaints about this.

I don't know why but this problem keeps coming back every 20 thousand to 30 thousand miles. I got tired of putting it in the shop and it running $700, so I bought the ignition coil, plugs for 270 and a pack of beer and I replace them myself. The way the engine is design makes changing the spark plugs a nightmare.
