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.

CarComplaints.com Notes: The 2015 model year is the first of the sedan's 2nd generation. Maybe they should have stuck with the 1st generation.

Driving vehicle it just pops out of gear and won't move. Often service transmission and emergency brake comes up. The engine doesn't die, but pressing the gas does nothing. I have to shut it off and sometimes it lets me put it in gear. It has been in the shop 4 times for this, each time they say it's fixed and there's no recall. My family's life has been put at risk, we were on a blind corner doing 35, and it just stops. Today, went to leave the house and it wouldn't go into gear after starting, the same service messages came up. We tried several times with no luck. At this time, dealer just says trade it in.. they have my vehicle again and we have a loaner, but I'm scared to put my children in this car, it keeps happening.
