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.

2002 Toyota Camry Owner Comments

During the winter months the car will not shift until I have driven the car for about a mile and stopped or slowed to a craw. I have tried warming the car for 10 to 30 minutes before driving with no success. This appears to be similar to other complaints however my car does not jerk when it shifts. The problem is a delayed shift from first to second gear. After I have driven the car for roughly a mile, then slow to a craw or stop the car the transmission shifts fine. I have only had this issue when the temperature drops to the 40's def F and below.
