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.

After stopping at a light, the Relay won't accelerate properly. I'll step on the gas and I'll hear the engine revving, but the van won't go anywhere. After a couple of seconds, the transmission will engage and the vehicle will jerk forward. What's tricky is that the problem is completely random. Sometimes it slips, sometimes it doesn't so we are unable to reliably recreate the problem for any mechanic and we can't find a solution. And it's just getting worse and more frequent over time.
