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.

(1) driving on interstate at maximum legal speed for several hours. (2) engine abruptly stops without warning resulting in loss of power steering and brakes. Attempts to restart engine while moving not successful. Negotiate through traffic to shoulder of road, narrowly avoiding accident. (3) vehicle sat on side of road for approximately five minutes and then restarted without any problems. Were able to continue trip and return home. (4) took vehicle to dealership. Engine was checked, but no problems found. (5) this has occurred two times during the four years we have owned vehicle..
