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.

We have actually been trying to find a used tranny for our 1997 suburban.The bell housing cracked.We were told that half way through the year in 1997 they replaced the tranny they were using with one that had a removable bell housing because there were problems with the bell housing cracking so were are now without a vehicle still trying to find a tranny and the cheapest price so far is 1000.
