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.

Okay I just bought this car a few months ago and it is already being a pain. What happens is, I turn the ignition switch to the on position ans the only dash indicator light that is on is the one that looks like a little motor. I start the car and it starts and runs fine. However the dash indicator lights don't come on until about 5 seconds or so pass by. This never happened before. The car has given me a few starting problems in the past such as cranking not not starting. Not sure what the problem........
