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.

Allison transmission problem: While in overdrive with a towing load going uphill, the transmission will downshift in or out of cruise control, causing the engine to increase speed up to the danger zone of 3300rpm. The vehicle was checked by the listed dealer, whom noted that General Motors has no correction available for the downshifting and engine racing in overdrive. This complaint is to register this observation with my vehicle.
