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.

This beautiful car is now a very expensive lawn ornament. I've had the car a year now, and haven't been able to drive it for about 8 mths. I noticed tranny fluid leaks in the driveway, and had it looked at, most said it was the rear tranny seal, which i had replaced., after replaced it ran great for about a week and a half, then the prob got worse than ever. to run, it now needs about a gallon of fluid a day, it just seems to run straight through the car, and when it does run it sounds rough, and will stall when you slow down, and when speeding up it falls out of gear and just revs up, i don't know what the hell the problem could be, if you know please feel free to pass on your knowledge. It started smoking as well, so bad it would suck up the smoke in the a/c intake and fill the car with smoke inside and out. HELP ME!
