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.

This issue has come and gone until recently... I'm pretty good at troubleshooting with cars, but this had me stumped. At first my speedometer would intermittently get stuck at 60, then eventually go back to where it's supposed to be. I did a bit of research, and I figured it was the speed sensors. I replaced both of them with oem replacements... It worked out ok for a little while... Then it went back to getting stuck.

I bought a odb2 scan tool with live data feed and had my friend check out my speed while I was driving... And that checked out just fine. So I ruled out the speed sensors. I did even more research and found out that others were having my same problem, which people resulted in getting a used instrument cluster to replace the old one. I finally got the 450+ dollars together to buy a brand new cluster gauge. I'm having it calibrated to show my mileage this Monday. Which will cost me $290. Plus installation...
