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.

Was exiting parkway West westbound exit for route 22 in pittsburgh for weirton, wv; engine shut off on its own when engine went out of overdrive and increased its rpms and I let off of gas pedal to brake - lost power steering and brakes, maintained control, shifted to neutral, restarted engine - traction control light remained on for rest of trip to wv until key was returned to completely "off". then all lights were reset to normal - no check engine warnings. This has occurred about 5 or 6 times again, always after accelerating, and then letting off the gas pedal. I have been able to replicate with vehicle in park - just rev engine to around 2500 to 3000 RPM, and let off the gas - it shuts off every time on its own. So far I have not been rear ended, but?
