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 have a 2005 Chevy Aveo that has repeat problems with the clutch getting hot and seizing the transmission, I had this fixed one in June of this year and today the clutch is doing the same thing again, this time I almost got in 2 accidents, couldn't shift right and was unsafe to drive.

My clutch let go in my car, I was told by the mechanic that the clutch got too hot and cracked the plate and the flywheel, it was not supposed to do that, the car was having trouble shifting and I could of been hurt.
