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.

Sudden clutch failure almost resulted in accident as no power was going to wheels when turning into a parking lot to diagnose the problem. Car was started on a slight hill, possibly in third, but with no hesitation, clutch was slipped but not smoked. During approx 3-5 miles of driving without riding the clutch the revs climbed while maintaining a steady speed, by the time I pulled over the clutch was gone. Aoa covered half of the part cost & 10% of the labor because it is a normal wear item, and thus not covered under warranty.
