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.

Plastic clip that holds shifter linkage to the shifting cable broke. Felt like shifter was flopping around. Dealer doesn't sell clip separately, Used a positive terminal battery post cap from a new battery. Insert plug into shifter cable end, push linkage post through the "+" in center of battery cap. Has worked well for over 4 years with no issues. (I keep an extra cap in the glove box)
