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.

The vehicle has problems shifting from first to second gear. Sometimes the gears change smoothly, and other times there is a thumping sound accompanied by jerking. This problem has occurred at least four times in the last month. In addition when making the transition from a low speed to a higher speed the vehicle's transmission would not engage into the proper gear. This made it seem like the vehicle was in neutral. The dealer fixed the problem with a retrofit kit and the vehicle seems to be working fine. The vehicle's cd player was not functioning properly. The dealer replaced and reprogrammed the cd player.
