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 #1

I've really had enough of this.. nobody seems to know what the problem is. After a fairly long trip i stop for gas and i have to switch the car off, but when i start it again the gears wont change.. it's an automatic and sometimes i have to wait 2 mins and it will go into drive other times i wait one hour and it still doesn't move into drive, its just stuck in park. I don't know if this is an electrical problem or if it's gearbox related. It only does this when the car has been on for a while and i've noticed when the car is cold and i switch it on it changes into drive straight away. Any help on this problem would be greatly appreciated.
