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.

Won't stay locked in overdrive. Talk about stupid design not allowing for a simple way to change a sensor. The service manager tells me the repair part only costs about $30. However, it is located inside an access cover that is blocked by the cars frame. Need to remove the tranny to get the cover off. That's how a $30 dollar part ends up costing $1000 dollars.
