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.

this has been the best car i have ever owned. it has leather,sunroof,power and class along with more bells and whistles than i use. but the transmission started slipping off the line under mid to full throttle unless i was in first gear. also it started doing a surging at constant speeds only on flats not on hills or inclines up or down.
