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.

Pedal to floor failure of clutch actuator. I want to yell at the GM dealer as much as at GM. I found a number of technical service bulletins from the nhts. gov website, showed them to the service department and was told they couldn't find them because they weren't in the proper format. Of the parts they replaced, the pressure plate and clutch plate were in good operating order. An engineer friend of mine stated that the actuator is what failed and was cheaply manufactured. The dealer replaced hydraulic system and clutch assembly.
