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 turbo went out at 130,000. I had bought this car used and later realized it should be classified as a lemon!

On 95S from Washington DC, during rush hour, going up a slight incline, the check engine lite came on and car slowed then the lite went out but when ever I tried to speed up the same thing kept going on.
