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.

when starting the car the starter cranks and a thud the dash lights go out and then it cranks and starts, all in less then 2 seconds. the dealer has put in 2 starters under warranty. now that it is out of warranty it will cost ???? if it is not the starter plus a rental car. the car should of been fixed right 2 starters ago. I dont know much about fixing cars but after 2 starters could it be something else?
