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.

My vehicle was not able to shift out of park even thought the shifter would move. I brought it in to the dealer because it should have fallen under. Us NHTSA campaign id: 12V460000. They bill reads:"repair a: replaced transmission cable" cable end separated. Repair B: fractured shift cable end fitting locking tabs cause recall: Install transmission shift cable kit per 12106" I feel I have been lied to and taken advantage of. I don't see a way that the fractured transmission cable could be a result of anything else but the fractured cable end fitting locking tabs. I was forced to pay $300 to pay for something clearly related to the recall. Please help me fight back against the dealership.
