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.

I love my van so much that I plan to buy another vehicle, but not trading my van .. Keeping it.. But I would like to know what the problem is with the jerking.. I have noticed when in slow traffic, maybe a traffic jam for several miles, is when it is worse while moving slow as the gears change and when just cranking up, on occasions of just starting off it jerks while changing gears

This problem has been off and on with this vehicle. This is the worst vehicle I have EVER bought! I have done nothing but put money into it! I really wish I had never bought this van. The transmission has not been right since I bought it. I cant even imagine a vehicle having this much of an issue. I have three kids and they all are disabled I need to have a vehicle to take them to a dr 2-3 hours away and can not do it in this vehicle. This is just stupid. The engine squeals like crazy every time I push the gas pedal. The transmission makes the vehicle jerk every time I go over 10 miles an hour.
