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.

I pulled car into a parking place, turned off the car, removed the key from the ignition without realizing the car was in "drive." When I returned, the car had rolled across the parking lot hitting another vehicle. I spoke with the lr dealership who confirmed this was not possible and was accused of leaving the car in "neutral." I tested this theory to find that I could remove the key from the ignition in any gear. The lr representative advised that a plastic part in the steering column occasionally breaks permitting the key to be removed with the shifter in gears other than "park." I was advised to make sure to use the emergency brake until I sell the car.
