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.

Automatic transmission shift cable fails without warning. Driver can shift from drive to park, cable will break, driver assumes car is in park but due to the break the car is still in drive and will remain in forward motion all the while the shifter indicates the car is in park. Spoke with Chevy dealer mechanics and am told this is very common on 1997-2000 Corvettes.....he says they do the repair on a regular basis. I had car towed to dealer for repairs. Repair cost was $345 including the parts.
