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.

Clutch would not allow me to shift the car between 3rd and 4th gear I traffic. This is not a new situation the car has done this on and off since I bought it new I notice it after driving a long time or in fast moving city traffic.

Driving the vehicle in any gear, when gas pedal to the floor, the car will fall on it's face when reaching 3000 RPM's and up at all speeds. It misses and the ti-vct isn't engaging correctly. Oil level is full, and the spark plugs look great. The vehicle will not even throw an mil light. The vehicle drives fine at low RPM's, but once you down shift to go faster it feels like it misfires and the engagement of the ti-vct is coming in and out.
