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.

(reported on)


  • Automatic transmission
  • miles
Present mileage 45,600 first reported attemt to fix 24,200 miles. District manager Oldsmobile says there is no known fix for the problem. He owned one that had the same problem. Iam very concerned that the distraction this hesitation causes will cause an accident. The district mgr. Will be a farnsworth next week. I feel Oldsmobile does not want to absorb the cost involved in such a repair and hope that I will trade the car. Iam at least 2 years from trading. What recourse do I have? it feels like a torque converter continuously engaging and disengaging, sometimes every fifteen seconds.
