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.

  • 26,000 miles


The car has been at the dealer every other week for the last 6 weeks. On cold starts the car would run rough, hesitate almost stall and the heat wasn't working unless you were driving or had your foot on the gas. Then the check engine light came on brought it to the dealer they replaced the timing chain changed the oil and bled the coolant. A few days later it stalled on a cold start and the heat still wasn't working. The dealer this time found excessive carbon in engine and a leak at water pump. Computer did not throughout a code for either. Dealer opened a case at the manufacture. 2 weeks later I brought it back when the windows would go half way down and the door would unlock. Dealer reset the windows and I went to pick it up to find the windows half way down and the doors unlocked. Dealer replaced the motor. 2 weeks later my battery light when on. On the way to the dealer the car died. Dealer said there was an oil leak the led to the alternator belt slipping off and my battery didn't charge and now is dead. I won't get it back until sometime next week. This car only has 26,000 miles on it.
