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 car stalled and came to a stop while traveling at 50 mph, thought it was battery. Got ride to parts store replaced the battery since it was cold weather and didn't want to leave vehicle on side of road. However, this was not the case. Car towed to local shop at a cost of $100. They hooked it up and said that it was the fuel pump and needed replaced costing $414.54. Just received a letter couple weeks prior on recall of fuel pump retaining tabs that hold fuel lines to fuel pump. Looked up other complaints and find that stalling seem to be an issue with this model, could it have something to do with the fuel pump?
