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.

On a trip, I the clutch started slipping and so I had the clutch replaced in Arizona last year. Now slipping again after 10,000 miles. I live in CA, 400 miles from last repair site. Need to get rid of this crappy American car (was good except for the bad clutch).
