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.

Failure of the clutch master cylinder resulted in a stalled vehicle in the number 1 lane of I-80W out of sacramento, ca. Very heavy labor day traffic prevented an accident. (stop and go traffic). As a result of the failure, the truck wouldn't shift into gear after the gear shift lever was placed in neutral.
