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.

Clutch pedal failed to return and caused driver to loose control of vehicle. No injury clutch hose line to slave cylinder was positioned to close to brake line causing wear and eventual leak of fluid line is available for inspection. The previous week the car was inspected by handy Chevrolet, the local dealer, and I was told it needed a new clutch and leak was not detected. Other owners have reported similar problems on the internet.
