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.

  • Automatic transmission

When I had bought the car the man selling it took me for a ride in it and rode it hard... I thought he was just showing me how fast the car could go.. but that was not the case. I bought the car and when I went to drive it home the transmission was not shifting and I could not go over 20mph. it turns out that the speed sensor was out on the car. the speedometer was not working nor was the car shifting. what the guy did was ride the car hard to MAKE it shift then when i drove it it was shifting. So I took it in and got it fixed ... cost about 100$, but once I got that fixed it was a pretty dependable car.
