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.

After placing vehicle in park, I was unable to remove the key from the ignition. The ignition key failed to align with slot so key could be removed. When I attempted to restart the car, it failed to start. I believe the problem is somehow linked between the ignition and the transmission/gear shift. Recently, when shifting into park and drive the gear shift met with resistance. I'm out of town (approx 100 miles) and afraid to stop anywhere until I reach my dealer. Had new transmission installed within the last two years. Posting this notice from hotel's computer, heading to dealer (mcgraph Acura, westmount, il.) to diagnose and hopefully correct problem.
