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.

problem #1

(reported on)

Aurora 3.2 V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 60,000 miles

So far we take the key out of the ignition, clean it off and wait 3 minutes. We can go somewhere, shut off the car again and we will have to do this all over. It is getting to be a pain.

It doesn't happen everyday, but when it starts it seems to continue throughout the day.
