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 owns a 2010 MINICooper S hatch back. The contact stated that the vehicle would stall sporadically while driving at various speeds and would often resist starting attempts. The contact was able to restart the vehicle every time the stalling failure occurred with the illumination of the instrument check engine light. The dealer was contacted and the vehicle was taken to have the failure diagnosed where the failure was contributed to excessive carbon buildup. The vehicle was repaired. The failure mileage was 16,000 and the current mileage was 18,000. Updated 03/14/12 the timing chain was leaking and had to be replaced. The consumer has since traded the vehicle. Updated 04/18/12
