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.

I am driving a manual 6 gear Audi Tt roadster 2001. In 2008, approx 2 months after I bought it used I shifted gear and all of a sudden held the shift in my hand, it had cleanly broken off the gear box. The lever was fixed and it cost me about 600.- to have that part repaired.
