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.

I just bought this freaking beautiful car with an ugly problem! 2 weeks after i bought the darn car i drive it to the store and i cant get it to start. I tried for two hours and finally got it started and I drove it to the repair shop. They checked every thing, the battery was fine , the starter was fine and the diagnostics machine found nothing. Just because they tried it a couple of times and it started does not mean I am a nut. The car does fine some times and other times it is not motivated to start at all. I was told to put High Octane Gas in it which I did, and fuel injector cleaner! Newsflash I still have a cantankerous car! hooray for the lemon law
