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.

Gear shift lever is very hard to move. Sometimes needing both hands to put it in gear. Sometimes it will not come out of reverse and go to park.

The column gear shift is to hard to shift when nessesary. Spouse could not shift into park and had to leave car in drive position on two occasions and call for help. She has since refused to drive the car. The car could have rolled after leaveing the vehicle since she failed set the parking brake.

Consumer states the column gear shift is too hard to shift when needed, consumer used both hands to shift into another gear. Dealer contacted. Consumer also stated that while driving the engine started to race, when she checked the dashboard, she saw that the gear shift had somehow shifted to neutral. (the vehicle automatically shifted to another gear unknown to her, same thing repeats) there is a whining noise coming from the engine. Consumer feels that this vehicle is too dangerous to drive. The consumers mechanic insists that the scarceness of the part is an indication of universal failure.
