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 driving at approximately 60 mph gauges malfunctioned. The temperature gauge went way up, and the vehicle overheated. Steering wheel locked up, and vehicle stalled. Driver had to wait 20 minutes to an hour before the vehicle would start up again. Owner drove the vehicle back to the dealer, and was informed that the computer wasn't talking to the diagnostic. Dealer told the owner that the defects were taken care of. Yet, these problems still existed. Also, owner was informed that the intake manifold was defective. Vehicle was out of warranty.
