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 purchased the car (certified pre-owned) on December 18, 2014. On February 13, 2015 I was parking in a restaurant parking lot. All of a sudden I felt the crash. At first I thought a vehicle had run into the back of my car. However, it turned out my vehicle had rolled backwards into another car. I had just pulled into the parking spot (which was on a slight incline) and was about to put it in park when this occurred. I accepted responsibility for the damage to my car and the other car involved and filed with my insurance. Once I had my vehicle back, I noticed that when I was stopped at a red light it felt as though the car was moving backwards. I then tested the car on a slight incline (5-10 degrees) and while in drive. It rolled backwards and continued to roll until I slammed on the brake. This car is an automatic. I have never heard of an automatic rolling backwards while in the drive position - especially on a very slight incline. I called the dealership and was told this was "normal".
