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.

Very strong sulfur smell - especially after hard acceleration. Power does not seem to be affected, so I don't think it is the catalytic converter. Sometimes smells of burning rubber instead (no, didn't spin the tires) - not sure if it is a related problem. Sulfur smell has been getting worse for the last few months. Very, very strong and awful smell.
