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 shifting gear gets stuck, and it cannot be moved from park to drive. To move the gear from park to drive and have to use a lot of strength to make the gear change. But sometimes it gets so stuck I have to wait to make the change. When the car is turn off I have to wait 2-3 minutes to remove the key. This happens on and off for no reason. This happens when the car is parked, it does not matter where.
