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.

While driving vehicle stalled. Consumer used a starter battery kit to restart the vehicle or contacted aaa to have the vehicle towed. The aaa representative indicated that the stalling may be due to engine motor failure. Dealership and sears retail store performed a diagnostic test, but no failure code was found. Also, the battery and air bag warning light came on. This failure almost caused rear end collision. Owner is an ex philadelphia Eagle football player named curtis bunch-black.
