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.

Car stopped accelerating as I was driving (twice this has happened - in a bend in the road--very scary). Also, around this time, could not start up the car--car engine was attempting to turn over but wouldn't until about my 6th attempt. I never had problems starting my car before. I might add that recently, before I had this problem, I have noticed that my vehicle does not have the fast pick up that it use to.
