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.

Car started stalling in December 2005. Computer replaced under warrznty. Check engine light came on intermittently. 10-15 trips to dealership yielded no diagnosis. While driving, gears started shifting back and forth on their own followed by increased heat gauge, leading to overheating. Multiple instances. Review of electrical system by specialist yielded no diagnosis. Replaced solenoids in transmission based on codes in computer. Problem continued unabated.
