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.

Now that I've had something else repaired that didn't really need repaired in the first place I'm having a severe problem. First when started the engine is extremely rough. Then when attempting to move it doesn't want to react to the gas pedal, and then starts to jerk forward. When stopped it attempts to rev it self to stay alive, jumping the whole car up and down, then eventually dies!

I haven't had the money to get it fixed yet.
