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 started to have problems with the car earlier in the year and had brought the car to two different locations to see if it was the brakes because that is what I thought it was at first. The car would not move properly after I had stopped at a signal light or a stop sign, it had felt as if the brakes were still on when I pushed my foot on the gas pedal, yet the car would stand still. Another time when we were slowing for a corner at around 5mph, the car had jerked back and forth until I had gave it gas and it worked out fine. Some days the car was fine and other days the car would act up. So, we called the dealership to have the car checked out and they have said that the transmission has problems but didn't say as to what. They asked for the maintenace records to see if the car was properly maitained and related that we might have to pay for the repairs, labor, estimate, ect while the car is still under the 60 thousand mile powertrain warranty. We did have the car service at a jiffy lube near us rather than go 35 miles South from here to do the same. So far I feel that I'm being taken for a ride.
