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.

The jerking is a noticeable loss of power, like something slips in the transmission. I cannot tell if transmission or maybe engine, but if I drop it back into "D" and not "OD", the problem goes away although the rpm's soar and burn lots of gas. I feel like it happens about 48 mph, but the "OD" gear never gets going and I feel as though I must continually punch the pedal to get the car moving.
