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.

shift indicator in dash is one position off. very annoying- drive position is acutally neutral etc. must be a simple way to fix problem but everybody says it will cost a lot. If I can find out how to make the repair I'm sure that I can make the repair myself since its only the indicator position. All help that I can get will be greatly appreciated.
