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.

Vehicle will not turn over. It was determined by dealership that new fuel pump was needed to correct problem. Vehicle occasionally within the past couple of years would almost stall out when coming to a complete stop.

When getting gas, fill the tank. Fuel level goes to empty. The fuel level will remain on empty until gas is at half, shows current gas level for 5-7 miles then returns to displaying empty.

Was at a stop sign, vehicle suddenly cut off, had plenty of gas. Tried to start, it wouldn't about 10 min. Passed and tried again, it started. Thought it was just a fluke. Went on about my business. About 2 weeks later, I was driving and it cut off, waited about 10 min. Again. It started. This time I took it to the shop and explained the situation. The tested it and nothing came up. Alternator was good, battery was good. This has happened about 6 more times. Took it to another shop, they couldn't find anything wrong with it. Not sure what it could be now. Anyone else having this problem?
