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.

My truck at speeds around 35mph while letting off the accelerator it would jump out of gear. So then, in 2012, I had the transfer case actuator motor replaced and it fixed the problem. Then just yesterday (Oct. 31, 2014) I had cruise control set at 70mph and when it would coast or try to slow itself down to maintain its speed, I would here a clunking noise and it would jerk. When I let off the cruise control and would let it roll to a stop it would pop out of gear! I made it back to town and even at slower speeds it would jump out of gear to the point where I had to put it in 4WD high to be able to move. I spoke with a mechanic at the local dealership and he said they have a lot of problems with them like mine which is why I think there needs to be some attention brought to them.
