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 Volvo X70 2010 station wagon has had a number of incidents where the car transmission "jumps" while the gas pedal is not engaged. It seems that when the engine is at idle, at a stop or during a slow turn, the car slightly and subtly jumps a bit. My Volvo dealer has attempted to "upgrade" the software but the problem, although sporadic, recurs. I am concerned that there is a defective issue here and that other potential dangerous problems may arise in the future.
