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.

When driving at any speed engine cuts off, causing steering and brakes to lock up. Driver has to let vehicle sit a few moments and then restart the ignition. Dealer has seen vehicle several times and cant fix it. Consumer stated that automatic windows malfunctioned. Coolant light cames on and dealer determined that there was leak in coolant bottle. The engine light cames on due to exhaust gas recirculation valve failure.

Vehicle did not come with electronic power mirrors even though there were wires for them. Manual stated that it should have them. Apparently, manufacturer forgot to put electronic power mirrors in the first 5,000 vehicles.
