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.

This vehicle has been rolling back on hills since I bought it. Have had brake problems, the vcr replaced, the power side door looked at and told it has been fixed. Y biggest complaint is while driving to work, stopped at a stop light. My van rolled backwards when I took off the brake to go to the gas pedal. My whole transmission system stopped working. The vehicle had to be towed and while in the shop they found the intake manafold to be defective. Luckily I bought the extended warrenty. Total cost for this repair was $4,200. I could go on about the problems with this vehicle.

When on a downward incline and vehicle was in park it will slip out of park gear, and will start to roll back. It could have cause an accident. Dealer notified.
