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.

The car stalls all the time. When its hot it will only run for about 10 miles before the stall. On days over 80 it will stall with in 5 miles. No one can re-create the problem. Then the car will start after it sits for an hour or so. No one can fix the problem. Its been hell for us. Sunk a lot of money into no cure.

In warm weather ( 70 +) the vehicle will not re-start after running well. It may take hours of waiting before it will start. The vehicle has been in the dealers' shop 5 times since 6/05, and the same condition still exists. The dealer leaves the vehicle in the shop overnight, and it starts in the morning. He has replaced the starter and filters, but has not determined the actual source of the problem. At this rate, the warranty will expire without correcting the problem. Any ideas?
