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 came to a stop at a stop light the engine made a loud thunking noise and jerked. The display showed the letter "D" with a slash through it. When the light changed to green my car would not accelerate normally. I was finally able to get the car to move by revving the engine up to 4000 RPM and it slowly crept forward. The mechanic advised the transmission range sensor was bad and needed to be replaced. Additionally the paint has chipped off on all the doors and 2 of the inside door handles have broken off.

The car will not shift correctly. Displays a scrambled message on the dash information console. Dangerous almost caused me to be struck and killed by a 18 wheeler. Something must be done by this. Is a serious problem.
