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.

in low speeds such as 1st or 2nd gear the car will have bad surges, i think it has something to do with the throttle response because it goes away with higher speeds, however i'm not sure what it actually is and i'm not sure what to do about it, it may be a transmission problem but i dont know. if anyone does please let me know.
