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.

  • Automatic transmission

2 separate incidents (9 mos. Apart), when applying brakes to stop for traffic light, car would not stop - engine revved very high, put gear shift in neutral, engine revving out of control - had to turn ignition off to stop car. The first time this occurred, I very narrowly avoided rear-ending car in front of me - took evasive action by moving into turning lane.
