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.

I took the car to PepBoys where they told me it was a fault of the safety feature that makes it so that you cant take the car out of park if your foot isn't on the brake. They removed a cord from inside the dash, and i've had no problems since. This also makes it so that you don't have to push the button in to change gears.

I've never had an incident where I forgot myself and failed to ahve my foot on the break or otherwise changed gears by accident.
