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.

Kodiak 6-cyl Diesel

  • Automatic transmission
  • 40,000 miles


: the contact stated there were numerous problems with the vehicle. At 20,000 miles, the left wheel bearing backed out and at 87,000 miles, the drag link failed. While driving 80 mph, the vehicle suddenly down shifted to 20 mph with no effort from the contact. While starting the vehicle, the RPM will not go beyond 2000. The vehicle has been taken to the dealer on numerous occasions and they can not determine the problem. This occurred regardless of the traffic conditions, speed or terrain.
