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.

In all weather conditions when putting the vehicle drive or reverse the car hesitates and is slow to get into drive/reverse... even when at a stop sign or a stop light the car is starting to hesitate before properly accelerating.

The contact owns a 2014 Fiat 500. While driving approximately 20 mph, the vehicle independently slowed down to 5 mph without warning. The contact depressed the accelerator pedal to the floor; however, the vehicle failed to respond. The contact removed her foot from the accelerator pedal and then depressed the pedal to the floor. The vehicle eventually responded. The failure recurred on several occasions while driving at lower speeds, usually in cold weather. The vehicle was taken to the dealer, but the failure was unable to be determined. The vehicle was not repaired. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure. The approximate failure mileage was 19,000.

While driving the car, would experience jerky movements while the car shifted in 1st, 2nd and 3rd gears, both accelerating and decelerating. Have had issues with the transmission locking while the car is in park, needing to let the car sit and then restarting it. Have also had issues with sluggish 1st gear that suddenly lurches forward when the gas pedal is really pushed down. Braking is also touchy. Multiple trips to the dealership service department to have this fixed, opened a case with the manufacturer regarding the fixes. Manufacturer supplied a new transmission valve body that was replaced, seemingly fixed the jerky movement but resulted in the sluggish 1st gear. Manufacturer closed case when lemon law was mentioned.
