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.

My car is having transmission problems again wont kick into drive until car has been running atleast 30 min then when I was driving on the highway about 40 is what I got to the car just stopped accelerating and was coming to a stop which could have caused a big accident if it would have been during high traffic times and when driving in town I come to a full stop and the car wont kick into drive again until I put it in low and move up manually. Then it is having a serious problem with the axel or something I was driving at 35 hit a small bump in the road and the car reared off to the right and I had no control of the steering for a few seconds and then it was like it locked back in when I started moving the steering wheel side to side and the T/C light is always on now and I was told there is a switch to turn it on or off and that could have something to do with the steering problem but I have found no such switch. Please help me and tell me what I can do about these issues as GM will not do anything they should recall this yrs model completely and pay the owners for a new vehicle since this is there fault.
