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.

SL2 1.9L 4 cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 90,000 miles


First the transmission will have problems shifting into reverse, then it wont go in reverse at all!! Then it starts slamming into 2nd and 3rd. Had transmission rebuilt for 2100, ran good for another 15000 miles or so, then started have transmission problems again. DO NOT BUY THIS MODEL WITH HIGH MILES!!
