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.

Going down the road, with no method to its madness, my overdrive light starts blinking. As a result of the overdrive light blinking, the car shifts hard and drops into drive from park. Took it to Transdrive, and they say the valves in the transmission are shot, I don't think that is the case though. Any ideas?
