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.

  • Automatic transmission
  • 88,000 miles


On New Years Eve my husband noticed our car started jerking while accelerating. At first we didn�t think anything of it, but now the car is boggin so bad that we can't even drive it. We thought maybe if we got the transmission flushed that might help... we are doing that today so we will see. I�m so mad... fairly new car we paid lots of money for and the stupid thing is starting to fall apart. My fear is we will need an entire new transmission... and with our 1st baby due any day... I can't afford $800!!!!! WHAT A LEMON!!!
