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.

I was driving down the road in rush hour going approx. 55 mph and my car completely shut off, the gauges shut down, lost power steering. Had to pull off the road as safely as possible, place vehicle in park and restart car. My car has shut down previously to this incident and feel as though it needs serious investigation. I could have been on the highway and been killed. This also has happened when in a spin out as well though this particular incident was random.
