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.

after driving for a short time (in the summer when the air is on. I don't seem to have this problem in the winter) my traction control light comes on which in its self is not that bad but then as i accelerate my car jerks into gear. No mechanic seems to know whats causing it.
