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.

shifter issues when car is cold

II took my Prius to the dealer, told them the shifter won't stay in drive or reverse when the car is cold; I have to hold it down to go until the car warms up. The dealer couldn't replicate the behavior, because my car was warmed up. He said he called Toyota, and they told him that they don't know anything about the problem, but I could try replacing a $461.00 part and it may or may not solve the problem. I know Toyota was lying because I saw a woman on national news who talked about the same problem.
