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.

I was driving home and my vehicle suddenly stopped at 30mph entering a intersection with train tracks. No warning at all other than a quick light on the dash and engine completely shut off and would not restart. Driver behind me luckily did not hit me and I somehow was able to coast my vehicle into a driveway lot of a gas station on the corner. After coasting into the lot I was unable to start my vehicle at that point I became stranded, luckily with no accident. After the fact I did further research and discovered that on Volkswagen diesel engines numerous consumers have had the same failure with the high pressure fuel pump that also would cut out while driving for no reason and leaving vehicle inoperative on the road.
