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.

When driving at any speed and going up hills, the consumer has to put the foot on the gas pedal hard to get some speed. On wet pavement the vehicle really doesn't have power. The vehicle will downshift, and when driving it will do light shifting. Vehicle is in the shop, and the dealer said the vehicle passed all the fuel tests, but the problem still occurs. The dealer did some work on the oil pan.
