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.

Regal LS W/Performance Pkg 3800 Series Ii

  • Automatic transmission

Well, when driving at highway speeds (80/kph+) their is a shimmy/shake/vibration in the seat, gas pedal, brake pedal 40% of the time, steering wheel a bit too. as well as occasional (60% of the time) hard/rough shifts, late to a degree as well. I know the shifting problem is the transmission, but i have had wheel bearings, strut plates and tires all replaced in an effort to take care of the shake and i am curious if the transmission could be causing that problem as well as the shifting problem. The car is unbelievable with the exception of this annoying, and likely extremely expensive problem. But if anyone has any insight as to what the hell is causing this vibration problem, that'd be swell.
