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.

Mariner Hybrid 4-cyl

This has occurred twice. The first time, (9-6-2010), driving in bumper-to-bumper traffic on the freeway- the light, "stop safely now" comes on and you cannot use the gas pedal and you have to try to get to the shoulder safely as the car has no power. I waited for half an hour and restarted the car and was able to get to where I had to go. Took it to dealer and they couldn't find anything wrong with it. The 2nd occurrence (March 31, 2012), same thing happened except I was on the freeway with everyone going at least 65 miles per hour and had to get to the shoulder without any power. Took it to dealer and they said it was a coolant pump problem. I went online and there are hundreds of complaints about this problem. This should be a recall issue and I shouldn't have had to pay for this. Extremely dangerous. Could so easily have been hit by oncoming traffic. Scary experiences.
