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.

While stopping could not restart vehicle. Driver was unable restart vehicle, and had it towed to the dealer. Mechanic determined that the battery needed to be replaced....battery post detached from battery, leaking battery acid into engine compartment. Due to battery failure consumer could not retrieve key.
