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 was attempting to pass a semi. The cruise was set at 70. The semi sped up to 70 also and I had to touch my accelerator to get past him. As I did, my transmission dropped into neutral and I had to let off the accelerator. It dropped back into gear at 65. I was then able to speed up to 75 and pass the semi. I had a line of cars behind me also doing 70.

Rolling slowly through a parking lot, the truck lunged forward, the transmission slipped into neutral and the engine began to over rev wildly up and down. (my foot was on the brake at this point. Earlier this year it did it on the freeway ramp as I attempted to merge into traffic. I took the truck to the dealer and they said there was a bulletin about the transmission and they reprogrammed the computer. The problem has not been resolved.
