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.

2004 Toyota Prius sedan. Stalls out while driving about 35 miles hour and the electric recharable battery drains. This has happened two times to me and I have taken it back to Toyota deal for this. The 1st approximately Jan -Feb time frame. Dealer could find nothing wrong. 2nd time approximately early April. Dealer said had trouble code in computer and have corrected problem but let them know if happens again or any other problem. Engine load, automatic gear shifts hard and car rolls slightly when put into park.

1) after breaking gently to a stop, the car switched to battery-mode and reported errors, including "check engine" 2) the car would not switch back to the gasoline engine, and could only be driven at 40mph on battery to the dealer 3) the dealer reported that the error codes suggested the onboard computer had to be reset, and once it was reset the car went back to normal operation
