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.

Transmission would shift out of a gear, car would rev up to high, then transmission would shift violently back in jerking the car around feeling like you have been rear ended. The transmission will slam so hard into gear when trying to accelerate( I have had this experience accelerating at 45mph and at 65mph) engine light comes on stays on for a few days goes off problem comes back a few days later. Only solution when this happens is to pull over and shut the car off. Once car is turned back on the gear shifter (automatic) is very tight to put in reverse or drive.
