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.

Driving home one night, the car worked fine until entering my alley. Then the car just coasted to a stop. The engine was working fine, but no power was being transmitted to the wheels. It would work in reverse only. Very annoying. Towed it to the dealership, they're replacing an oil feed line in the transmission. We'll see if this fixes it.
