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.

The problem i am having is when i push down on the gas pedal hard as if to pass someone the transmission will jump out of drive into neutral. This is a new problem, so i checked the motor mounts and i did have a broken front one, replaced and still have the problem. The other thing if i do hold it in gear when i hit the gas the car will not go into passing gear.

Other then that the transmission acts normal if i had not tried to pass a car i would never had known the problem was there.
