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.

Odometer, and shift indicator goes out, and you cannot tell what gear you are in or your mileage. Warrenty replaced instrument cluster a couple of years ago. But now it is happening again. I was told the cluster was bad again and needed replacing. But it goes off and stays off for a week or longer and the next thing you know its back on again.I have unplugged the connecor from the cluster and replugged it in and the cluster would work again, only for a short while. Local repair shops has told me they have been regularly replacing these clusters. This could cause accidentally placing transmission in wrong gears, causing injury and accidents.
