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 handle locks in park and you can not shift into gear. This is a known issue and GM even notes how to over-ride the problem in the owners manual (see page 2-31), when it happens. Since this happens so often, and to so many owners (see internet comments on problem), a permanent fix should be done and covered by the manufacturer. In an emergency situation you may not have time to play with the shifter and this can lead to an accident or personal injury. While GM does note to contact a dealer about this problem in the owners manual, no recalls seem to have been made?
