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.

Brand new car in the shop twice during first week. Following refueling (not topped off - stopped at first click) the car starts stalling at red lights or at low speeds. Has done this a dozen times. On the highway car stutters, check engine light comes on and traction control becomes disabled. The dealership says this is due to overfilling the gas tank and changed the carbon cartridge for the evac this is definitely not the case. A second refill after the repair confirmed that the problem exists even when filling up very carefully. If gasoline is filling up this component then there is something seriously wrong with this vehicle and its dangerous to drive. Again this car is only 9 days old and in the shop twice for the same reason. Losing power at a busy intersection is dangerous as this has happened in areas where cars are moving quite fast. I was almost rear ended when my car stalled.
