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.

Car idles high. If you are at a light or parked in the car the car will idle high then shut off. If youare driving on the highway and need to pick up speed the car revs up and then rpms go real high but not any power put into the car to move. This issue has been a problem since we first bought the car. And is getting worse.
