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.

Not really a complaint. Just a normal thing to happen to a high mileage daily driver. You give it gas and it just revs. Rev it higher and it will start going but it really bogs down.

Update from Jan 30, 2016: Transmission Failure. Would not go into reverse. Would only pop into reverse if you revved it going downhill. Transmission would slip sometimes while in Drive.

Update from Mar 17, 2016: Had a replacement transmission put it in. $1400 for the transmission, and about another $1400 for labor.
