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.

While driving I felt and also heard a clunk, then my check engine light came on. While driving it felt like my car was stuck in 1st gear (it has an automatic/manual trans). We then realized the manual was not working, and everytime we put it in drive there is a clunking noise. Now as we are driving it sounds like it is stuck in 1st gear like the manual went out and the car thinks it is stuck, the engine revs the RPM's go up and the automatic kicks in but it does not shift right and the engine does not stop revving. Since I had this car I have replaced the brakes twice, the battery, the window module, the whole ac. This car is costing more then it is worth and Chrysler will not help with any of it. The window module transmission and ac should not have gone out so early.
