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 lights don't come on when the key is turned to on position. It will turn over but not start. It originally got worse after the car was warmed up. It will try to run on starting fluid, so I'm guessing an intermittent short that is also on the same circuit as the fuel pump.

Otherwise a good car for the money.
