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.

The transmission was replaced at 60,000. After numerous torque converters and being told to deal with it, we left it alone only to replace the transmission.....again. Am having the same problem. No one seems to know what to do. So have left it alone. The Buick dealership seems to go brain dead. Cottman did the first and many torque converters.....do not recommend them. Always had to take it to the dealership and get a computer printout then take it to Cottman to prove there was a problem Still not fixed.
