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.

: the contact stated the vehicle stalled while traveling at 5 mph causing an accident. There were no injuries and a police report was filed. The vehicle intermittently restarts after a few minutes, other times if may be up to an hour. It was towed once because it would not restart. This occurs more often when it's raining. The vehicle has been to the dealership five times. On one occasion the fuel pump and fuel injection sensor were replaced. On every other occasion the dealership could not duplicate the problem.
