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.

Driving car...cable disconnects...no ability to switch to any gears! Pulled over & was able to have someone put it back on (it just slides on) and hold it until I got into gear (while car was running) and then I was able to drive to the mechanic. Apparently the piece is made of plastic!!! and gets worn out. It was $75 for the Shift Control Cable the remaining cost was labor. If I had been in a dangerous area, or the highway, it could have placed us in a life-threatening situation. There was no hard shifting or noise beforehand...no indication it was going to fail.
