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.

This car is equipped with the 4T65E trans axle. It is suffering hard shifting. You basically feel like you went through a pot hole when it shifts into gear. If you notice the engine will rev (minor) to make the transmission shift. You feel the car jerk. I have had this inspected my 3 specialists and had the fluid and filter changed. Apparently you must have a new value body put in (about a $500 job - which is the cheapest I have found). Keep driving till it dies!
