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 contact stated the vehicle intermittently stalled, without warning, while driving 70-75mph. The vehicle restarted after waiting about five minutes. Also, the fuel gauge showed an inaccurate reading and no more than seven dollars of gasoline can be pumped into the tank before the pump shuts off. The vehicle was seen by the service dealer who was unable to duplicate or diagnose the problem.
