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.

When I enter onto an interstate (mainly go above 50 mph(, my car seems to be stuck in 3rd gear and won't go up to 4th. So I end up at 5000 rpm or more if I try to maintain speed.

This doesn't happen every time I go over 50 mph. There is no pattern - hot/cold, been sitting / just driven, etc.

I have to pull over or take an exit, turn my car off, turn it back on, and then I can speed up and it will shift like normal.
