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.

When I bought this car last year the shifter was hard to move in and out of drive. I thought it was normal cause of the mileage (149,000). The car drove perfect besides when it was time to shift into drive, reverse, park, or etc. After being rear ended in a fender-bender I noticed it was much harder to shift than before the accident. I was driving people home from a night out and I put this car in over-drive (by accident). I went to park my car and the shifter wouldn't move out of over drive. So I turned my car off and i tried to start it again and it would not turn on. This was probably because of a safety feature that prevents you from turning the car on while its in drive. So I had the car towed home. Not sure what the problem is. My neighbor thinks its transmission linkage and transmission cable. I did hear there was a recall on the transmission linkage but its long been expired. I really like this car, so I hope its not too pricey.

All the sudden one day, the gear shift is really hard to move. The shifter cable is fraying and needs replaced.
