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.

problem #2

Navigator 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

Consumer states accelerator pedal is sticking, causing vehicle to lose control. Dealer notified. Vehicle has unexpectedly accelerated and or stuck in passing gear over 12 times. On July 14, the failure occurred while in reverse. The remaining times in forward while approaching speeds of 90 to 95mph. The engine would continue to "rev" up for no reason. The consumer's only resolution to this problem is to put it in neutral and turn the key off and back on to control the steering and have brakes power to stop the vehicle. The transmission had started making a "clunking" noise when switching from neutral to either drive or reverse.
