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.

Grand Am GE

Car starts fine at first. If I have to turn it off, it will not start. I have to wait 1/2 hour to restart it then starts fine. I have had the fuel pump, alernator, and the ignition switch replaced and the security system has been reset. Nothing has helped.
