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.

I applied the brake to shift car out of "park" and it would not shift. I had to have my car towed and the dealership said that the clutch assembly needed replacement. After researching the internet, there are several types of these complaints. There is a recall out, but my model year and VIN do not meet the recall criteria.
