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.

Engine stalls, on starting from stop, sometimes when going down hill, or over a bump in the road. Seems to stall when RPM goes below 750. Commonly stalls in intersection, resulting in dangerous situation while one restarts car. Complained to dealer, but they were unable to fix problem. This is a recurring problem with stalls daily to once every several days. Has been doing it since I purchased the car.

The defect campaign number is PE10034. The failure mileage was 13,000 and the current mileage was 18,800.
