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.

Transmission has always shifted hard into second when upshifting. Dealer says it's normal, transmission shop says it isn't, but due to a poor design by Chrysler, the fluid pumped through the system can't fully reach where it needs to be for just that one gear during an upshift. So, he suggested adding about 0.5 - 1 litre of additional fluid, and sure enough, it solved the problem!
