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.

When accelerating the car does not respond at first, and then when it does finally accelerate it switches gears so hard the whole car lunges forward, I took the car into the dealership three times. Each time they said they needed to do software upgrade. This never fixed the problem. The car still continues to do this. The first time I took the car to the dealership the car was at 55,000 miles, my car is currently at 65,000 miles. It is a real safety concern because if you press the pedal to turn, there is such a delay that it may not be safe to turn anymore but the car then accelerates.

I brought my vehicle to a complete stop, shifted the vehicle in "park" and saw the "P" light come on the dash, and proceeded to exit the vehicle. Because I was only retrieving my mail from the mailbox, I did not turn the car off or put the parking brake on. As I exited the car, and took my foot off the brake pedal, the vehicle started to move forward even thought the "P" was lit on the dash. I immediately grabbed onto the door and jumped back in the car, as it almost hit me from behind and pressed on the brake pedal, and all the while, the shift indicator was lit in the "P" for park position. Since then, I have had a few instances where the vehicle will not start and the dash indicator light reads "transmission fault drive moderately". it appears and then goes away and does not re-appear. From this point, I now use the emergency brake whenever I stop the vehicle to get out. [xxx] information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).

A huge bang/clunk which feels like another car rear ended the vehicle. Very freighting that causes driver panic! this has occurred multiple time over the past years. Dealer reports nothing can be found wrong.
