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.

  • Automatic transmission

The telematics and other electronics systems of the vehicle have failed or reported apparently erroneous information on many occasions. In most cases, these failures occur while the vehicle is in the midst of travel, which thereby causes the driver to become distracted from driving while focusing on the system failure. This poses a potential safety issue as it prevents the driver from devoting the needed attention to operation of the vehicle. Problems include, but are not limited to: Airbag and SRS warning messages; service engine messages indicating potential emissions problems; failure of dynamic drive system; inoperability of tire pressure monitoring; erroneous flat tire messages from tire pressure monitor; gas tank gauge reading empty although fule is in vehicle's tank; telephone system failures; failures and freezes of navigation system; failure of audio system which results in having to hold telephone or view navigation screen as audio commands are muted; inoperative voice commands.
