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.

Simply put, nobody seems to know what wrong with the car and its been at the shop more then at home. If the car has set for a while, when you use reverse, the car stops moving, as if you have applied the brakes. A new car and it isn't for !@@#. I always knew there was a reason I wouldn't buy a new car, now I know.
