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.

2008 Ford Taurus(automatic transmission), I was on interstate doing speed-limit 60 mph. When traffic became heavy so was slowed to 45 mph. An when I went to accelerate the car began to jerk an had hesitation like transmission but only when pushed gas pedal. I have notice it bogs down around 60 mph an jerks 3 or 4 times an seems like losing power an then it will pick back up normal drive few more miles an it will repeat. Also checked fluids an they are fine an dash isn't showing any service lights. But when O/D is off it gets intermittent power surge. Also leaving my house got to the stop sign an car would not hold it keep rolling backwards.
