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.

Just change your fluid and filter. No questions asked, I think this is a NO-BRAINER. Lifefime fluid=Lifetime of pain. I don't think any fluid is lifetime especially when used in a device where gears are continuously grinding at each other and clutch materials are rubbing and so forth..Cost me around $100 including filter and I think 6 or 9 quarts of this stuff....Tranny shifts smooth as butter now!
