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 rented a 2013 Porsche boxter conv. They dropped it off to me at store, due to my car being towed away from being hit. Was quickly shown the outside to verify no body or wheel damage' few days later, driving rental, I pull up behind a pick up truck on the coldwater cyn in los angeles, (one way, each direction} traffic came to a standstill, and then my engine shut off, tachometer went to zero. Odd, and as I was reaching for key to restart, I gently put my foot on the accelerator, and wow, car comes alive and lurches into truck in front of me. Now damage to car can be repaired, but if I had been at a crosswalk when this happened, I could have killed or seriously injured pedestrian. \ dealer later tells me car has option of auto stop.\ should be required of rental car companies to inform renter of this feature so as not to have accidents.

On the 2013 Boxster the tailpipe can burn your leg if you're not carefully when you go to open the rear trunk. It my view that the tailpipe extend to long from the bumper of the car and therefore, when someone goes to open the trunk your leg will touch the tailpipe. My wife was burn on her leg from the tailpipe. I made a complaint to North America Porsche. I got the feeling from the senior rep that it happen and so what. I someone can take look at this issue and see if something can be done about this.
