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.

the car is f*cking cheap! won't shift out of 3rd gear and REVS REALLY HIGH when trying to drive on the freeway. it feels like the engine will blow up if i go above 100KM. i never got it fixed because it would cost more than the car is worth. but now i have to pay TONS OF MONEY for gas because since it revs high all the time, it guzzles gas! it's like i'm driving a truck... it's had a few other problems as well but this is the most annoying one. please don't buy ths car. i know it's cheap... you might be tempted... but please don't buy it!

I was driving my car like usual when i realized after a stoplight that my car didnt shift into 1st at the red light but instead stayed in 3rd. After that i realized that it not only didnt shift down to 1st or 2nd, but that it also wouldnt shift into 4th. it was kind of a pain in the ass driving along at 45mph doing around 4000 rpm. It still shifts into reverse and park, so i know it isnt completely shot, but i have no clue as to why it wouldnt shift from 3rd
