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 contact owns a 2002 Chevrolet Corvette. While the vehicle was in park, it surged in reverse while the contact was retrieving items from the trunk. He had to jump out of the way of the vehicle. His spouse had to slam on the brakes to stop the vehicle. The vehicle was towed to a dealer and they diagnosed the failure as a defective cable. The current and failure mileages were 8,000.

While driving uphill transmission will not allow to shift to 2nd when speed is between 15 and 20 mph, and sometimes will shift to 4th gear before shifting to 2nd gear. Manufacturer had been contacted.
