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.

It started out slow. The engine would only miss when heading up a large hill with the cruise control on. After 3 months, and no one knowing what the problem is, it happens w/ or w/o the cruise on and on flat land. Everyone has a different solution for the problem. When I get 3 of the same ideas, I'll try it and let you know.
