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.

Car is in for service for 3rd time -- intermittent electrical problem causing loss of transmission (I.e. revs then drops in and out of gear); driver display warnings include service stabilitrak, service power steering, service transmission. Power door locks also operate on their own. Instrument cluster gauges will drop towards their off position, then resume normal position during these events. If the car is shut off, sometimes a "no start" condition will occur when the key is turned to the start position, gauges will operate normal even with no start condition. After rapidly cycling the key off/on/start position for sometimes up to 30 times, car has always eventually started. Sometimes condition has cleared, other times transmission is stuck in a gear (3rd for previous dealership visit, 4th for current visit) but not in a limp home mode as full engine power is available. Manual shifting is not permitted, "shift denied" appearing on the driver display. Very concerned about safety as dealership cannot guarantee that transmission will not drop into lower gear at highway speeds. If the transmission were to suddenly drop into 3rd at 75 mph with no application of the brakes, the car behind me may not be able to react to the sudden drop in my vehicle's speed. Condition has happened when vehicle and components are hot, such as after highway/city driving for 2 hours.

On the same day, within a few hours of each occurrence, first I had the keys in ignition and vehicle running, and shut the door and all four doors locked. Then a few hours later, I tried to put the vehicle in to drive and it would only rev up and would not go forward. When this happened, the D for drive on dash was flashing. Reverse worked fine. In both instances the car was stationary. When the car was locked, we used the spare key to manually open the door. In the second instance, I had the car towed to a dealer. Having trouble uploading the service receipt, but they found nothing wrong.

The dashboard lights flash along with the radio/navigation screen and sound system while driving. This happens while the vehicle is in motion and has begun happening more frequently now. Also, sometimes the key control does not work for the car even though the key battery is up to date.

When I run my heat from day one of getting the car the radio shuts off and the screen will go black and shut off and turn back on with no screen, the voice calling when the radio gets hot shuts off or the radio will be stuck on the last note that was said on the radio will play loud for minutes at a time, if you touch the radio with your hand it will burn your hand, this is all while driving the only way to stop the radio from doing these things is to wait it out I hope for a recall soon a brand new car shouldn't have issues like this.
