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.

Well I was with my kids and my sons baby in the car and all of a sudden on our way out of the store our car turned off ac turned off everything just completely stop working and the key didnt wanna come out it was stuck. after 5 hours at the parking lot trying to see if we could get it running because we didnt know what exactly was wrong, we towed it home. The next day we took it to a dealership to see if they could tell us what was wrong because nobody could tell us. Well they got it running and "supposedly" fixed it and about 10 days later again at the store it turned off exact same way it said error on the dash board again. So we took it back and it wasnt what they thought was wrong it wasnt an alarm that was installed wrong it was now that the front breaks were making a shortage causing the problem and charged us another $360 dollars.That was just last week and so far it hasnt turned off again thank god but if anybody has more info PLEASE!!! share because we still have no idea how to fix it and what could cause this problem.
