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 while driving 75mph on the interstate, the engine stalled without warning. Afterwards, the engine restarted without further incident. The vehicle was driven to a dealer who was unable to duplicate the problem. Although the stalling problem did not persist, the check engine light illuminated. The vehicle was taken to an independent repair shop who determined the crank cam sensor needed cleaned. Afterwards, the check engine light again illuminated. The manufacturer was alerted.
