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.

will not shift from 2nd to 3rd

If a vehicle is taken care of and maintenance is kept up the same problem should not keep recurring. The third gear keeps going out. This is the third time the same problem has occurred. The transmission keeps going out. At 1500 dollars after a while it gets expensive. The manufacturer has made their money.
