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 consumer stated the vehicle has push buttons to change to 4-wheel drive. Without warning the vehicle changed from 2-wheel drive to 4-wheel drive without touching the controls. The dealer changed the computer and said they could not find the cause of the problem. Caller said loaner vehicle did the same thing. Manufacturer said they could not find the cause of the problem either. Had vehicle 7 times at dealer for this problem. The air condition was not cooling properly, therefore the dealer replaced the ac condenser.
