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.

Transmission is having problems accelerating and shifting gears. Would "rev" up then not shift and not allow my car to accelerate while I was on the highway, causing cars to back up behind me and putting me in danger. At other times it will not allow me to even accelerate. Have to consistently restart my car in dangerous places on the road to get it to eventually work. Went by body shop and turns out to be a speed sensor code issue with the transmission. Needs some form of a valve body repair, but unsure to what extent. This is one of many problems with this vehicle.
