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.

Since the third day of purchase, I went back to the dealer and informed the salesman all the problems and he said that the car has a new invert system and it will get used to the way I drive the car. Before the month of purchased, the car stopped while driven and it had to be towered to the dealer. The service people said that the problem was the alarm system. They changed the cables related to the alarm, but after that the car I took the car many times to the service center. The car shift the gears no matters the speed. While stop on the red light, the car give a bump like I had been hit by the car behind me. Many times the engine stop while I was waiting the red light to change or doing a stop signal. Besides the check engine lamp used to turn on and once they cleared the computer. Then when the car was almost out of warranty, they admitted that all the problems were caused by the transmission and proceeded to fixed. This was on July 2001 and the car still goes with the same problems.
