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.

Finally had to have tranny rebuilt at 157000 km (98000 miles) after driving it with faulty second gear for a couple years. Started out with occasional slipping out of 2nd when downshifting to accelerate, then after a couple months and ever after had to shift manually from 1rst to D because wouldn't go on 1rst gear automatically.

Sticks in 1st gear and wont shift to 2nd until I manually shift to neutral and then to drive ....shifts fine 3rd to 4th. I understand it could be a governor pressure sensor and solenoid.....and possibly more. AAMCO says i could be looking at a $2200 rebuild, I ran codes and received a P1756 which is governor pressure sensor, i'm told to replace it along with the solenoid. ALSO my A/C doesn't blow very well in the front and its sh*tty for cooling me off.

other than that I towed my 2 motorcycles and toolbox from california to Illinois with hardly no trouble,,,,froze my ass off because my heater doesn't work so good for heat. of course i towed all that before i had the shifting problems, actually 2 years before.

blah blah blah......
