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.

Dt; last summer was driving down highway at about 45-50 mph and one of the engines went out, and the car decelerated and finally stalled out. Parked by roadside, and had to be towed to dealership. Serviceman did a computer correction, but did not record this because it happened at night. Again about 2 months ago the engine went out, car slowed, and would not restart. Had to be towed to dealership. The car was returned without explanation. Afraid this may happen again.
