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.

Check engine light and vehicle stability control light came on. Strong smell of sulphur fumes filled the cabin since failure of the catalytic converter and charcoal canister. It was determined at the dealership that the charcoal canister failed and the catalytic converter needed to be replaced. So far has not been replaced due to parts out of stock and is scheduled to be repaired on Sept. 24, 2004 under warranty. This happened to a brand new Toyota rav 4 at 2300 miles.
