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. Notes: There must have been something in the water at the plant where they built the eighth generation Corollas, especially the 1998 and 1999 model years.

Outside of a few engine related issues for the 1999, these are about as dependable a car as you’ll find. And remember most of these cars have 200k miles on them by now. But good luck finding one; owners say they want a new car, but can’t justify trading in their Corolla because the darn thing just keeps rolling.

HELP ME!!!!!!!!! I know some stuff about cars, which is still next to nothing and I don't know what's wrong with my car. It started right after I got the oil changed about 2 months ago, and has been slowly getting worse. At first, it would just have a hard time accelerating up a steep hill, but after pressing harder on the gas, it would be fine. This has devolved into a serious problem. Any time I slow or stop, it almost stalls, and (to get out of the way of the angry folks behind me) when I step harder on the gas, it will move, but sometimes starts making this klunking noise. Other times, it drives just fine. It really doesn't like hills, which is a problem considering I live in Duluth (all hills)....I've had the oil changed since, no difference. And 3 or 4 times, I've added bottles of that gas line cleaner stuff that is supposed to clean gunk out- no change. It seems like a problem with the car not being able to get enough gas. Any ideas or suggestions would be life-saving!!! Thanks!!!
