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.

On 11/30, we turned on the car, the engine light on the dash came on to service engine. We took the car to the dealership. We were informed the problem is in the transmission. It needed a torque converter, a pump and new gaskets. They've had the car since 12/2, and informed us they were waiting for the gaskets which will possibly be two more weeks.

I put the car at 'N' gear position, but the car went backward. I stopped the car, took out the keys, and restarted. The second time, about 2 months after the first incident, the car started to roll when I put the car at 'P' gear position.
