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 along hwy 101 the overheat light turned on and the temperature gage jumped to over the limit. We pulled over and checked the vehicle, it was not hot. However, the gage would not return to normal, causing the vehicle the chug and have very little drive until 15 minutes down the road it kicked back into normal like a bat outta hell. This, along a mountainous fast moving highway with logging trucks on my tail; not a very safe situation. On this same trip, the passenger window would not go back up, @ 55mph and 40 degrees, it was not pleasant.
