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 truck when placed in park, and running will jump into drive after one minute or so. This has happened twice. The first time it happened, I got out to close a gate. The truck sat in park for approximately 2-3 minutes while I struggled to close the gate. When I got back to the truck, it made "pop" then shifted slightly. I looked down and it was in Drive. The second time it took it less time to shift to Drive from the Park position. Thank goodness we had passed in front of the truck and walked a hundred feet to the gate before it again made the "pop" and drove off without us, trailer in tow. It's lucky the wheel grabbed the side of the road and hit a tree 15 feet ahead. It could have been a very serious accident.
