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 vehicle was repaired however the failure was not corrected. The vehicle was taken to the dealer and repaired five times but the failure was never remedied.

On July 14, 2010, my car starting driving sluggish, as if pulling heavy weight. The gear box fault light turned on. On 7-16-2010, I took my vehicle to the dealer and was told it would cost me $2,800 plus tax to change the gear box with a one year guarantee. My second option was to install a new transmission at a cost of over $5,000. Two months ago I spent $5,000 on a new electrical system and fuel injection. I don't know what to do since I am struggling as many financially. The dealer said there have not been any transmission problems with this model. Told him I doubted that, hence, my complaint.

The vehicle was taken to a shop, but the mechanic could not duplicate the problem. The consumer stated the mechanic changed out the computer, and now thinking along the lines of possible electrical problems. Refer to ODI# 10021053 (online)
