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.

When applying the accelerator pedal from a stop position it caused a momentary pulse before the vehicle went into motion. Vehicle had been to the dealer on numerous occasions, and they were unable to locate the problem. The consumer stated that the pause was so severe that it jerks all passengers heads. The vehicle also had transmission problems. The transmission had a harsh shift and clunk when going into reverse or drive. The transmission has been repaired.
