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 contact stated while traveling various speeds, the vehicle hesitated. The dealership rebuilt the automatic transmission, but this did not repair the problem. The vehicle was taken back to the dealership and the gear shifter assembly was replaced. Then the automatic transmission control valve was replaced. The vehicle has not been driven since the last repair was made. The consumer stated the vehicle stalled between 20 and 40 mph. The door lock switch was inoperative, the mirrors would not return to their orignal setting. Updated 10/27/06.

The contact stated that vehicle was difficult to shift from park. The transmission was making a clanking sound. When starting up the engine it made a strange noise. After the engine was running for a while the noise went away. The vehicle has been to dealership about six times for the same problem. The dealership was unable to make a diagnosis.
