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.

This car is run by an electric system that does not allow for easy reset of warnings that continuously have a bell ring reminding to complete Auto Transmission and Oil Checks which I did 2 months ago. The last time I took it in to be fixed, the same problem of the car overheating and shutting off was to be fixed but the mechanic said they did not know what the problem was.
