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.

I have to drive my car like an elderly person. I can not pull off at a regular speed. When I first pull off, the car will barely move. It will eventually go into 3rd maybe on a long stretch of road like a back street or highway. At every stop, it acts like this. I am going crazy. I took the car to the transmission shop and they are not getting any codes to pull up.One of the mechanics thinks it is related to the instrument panel problem. I know that when the mechanic test drove it the first time, it did not do anything odd. The second time he drove it,it started to whine and he knows that it is coming from one of the wheels. ?????????????????? L 0 r D help me.
