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.

Transmission started making noise and slipping but was only a couple of blocks from home so it made it to the driveway. No real warning signs until the end. The transmission fluid had been serviced at 50k miles and again at 98k miles so I thought it would be good for a while. Turns out they had just done a flush but didn't change the filter and it had became clogged starving the transmission of fluid. The transmission shop said this happened on Chrysler transmissions if the filter was not changed. So if you have a Chrysler have the filter changed.
