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.

2003 Buick Century has 90,000 miles. Transmission shifts hard on acceleration/deceleration. Obd II reports dtc of P0742 - torque converter circuit stuck on. Transmission repair shop, and internet search indicate common problem with these type of GM transmissions. Estimate to fix $1900 to $2400. If this is a manufacturing defect, shouldn't GM resolve at no or nominal cost to owner of car?
