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.

Apparently, the exhaust manifold bolts are too small. heat and engine torque create too much stress on the rear bolts and they snap,"A- factory engineering flaw". the bolts are special, they hold a heat shield on, that attaches to the heads on the bolts. No apparent fix,other than re-design a bigger stronger bolt and re-tap the holes on the heads.
