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.

On a 40 degree day I drove the car about 1 mile. At a traffic light it stalled. I had to keep the car in park until the light changed, then I put it in drive. When the car was initially started it didn't seem right. It didn't seem to have power or pick up. I noticed the tachometer was quickly bouncing between 1800 RPM down to 400 RPM prior to stalling. Car had half a tank of diesel, outside weather conditions were dry. The consumer stated the stalling is still ongoing. The dealer believed the stalling was a result of different additives in the fuel between winter and summer. Updated 09/14/11
