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.

Ok I have this car, and its not having alot of get up and go like it should. It takes FOREVER to get it up and go. No joke. I know its not supposed to have that much, but when you press the gas pedal to the floor I would expect a little tire squealing, but this thing TAKES FOREVER to go! Then it has a problem changing gears. Its in the shop now. With problems.

Which include:

Piston Rings (oil leaks INTO the spark plug tubey thingy)

CRACKED manifold

Possible blocked up cadiliac converter

and a broke wheel barron!
