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 computer keeps resetting the transmission auto shifting system; allowing the trans to only shift into 3rd and reverse. The repair shop could not find any problems witht he trans, and replaced the shift and reset the computer. The problem is persisting and i've had to have the computer reset now three times since the original incident.
