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.

Dealer could have helped, but wouldn't loan out the box that registers problems. Because the problem happened erratically, no one really took it seriously. I got the car in 2005 and have been putting up with this for nearly 5 years. Changing my driving styls--never coasting in neutral and never going around corners with the clutch depressed has helped a lot, but I worry about it shutting off in some situation where it would be dangerous to not have power. When it shuts down, it is hard to brake and steer.
