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.

While shifting gears the vehicle jerked and vibrated uncontrollably. The driver was able to maintain control of the vehicle and pulled over. The vehicle was taken to the dealer for inspection. However, mechanic could not duplicate the problem at this time. Blemish in rear leater seats. Engine stalls out and occasions surges/hesitates. Very hard 1-2 shift and transmission hunts 4-5 shift. No problem found. Transmission was upgraded for 2004 Ls to syncro type, which accounts for a crisp 1-2 shift. Under load going up hills vehicle will buck/loses power on acceleration.
