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 brought my truck into sewell cadilac to have it check "several time" and I keep getting the same ruin around. I told them that I hear a grinding noise like "metal to metal" and I have been concerned that it was the clutch plate. This has been happening for almost two years now, and they tell me that they can not find anything wrong. They said they don't hear any noise, and they aren't going to go into the transmission to check it out. I have had both seat handles replaced because they have just sheared off at the metal, and they are both starting to get difficult to use again. I don't think it will be much longer before they break again.
