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.

problem #2

May 102003


  • Manual transmission
  • 20,000 miles


Manual transmission sticks, it won't go into to gear or come out of gear. Especially first, second, and reverse. We have been stuck in traffic and not been able to get our car into first gear. I have at times, had to spend 5 minutes trying to get our car in reverse. Already caused one accident, and many more near misses. Also ticking/rattling noise coming from clutch at all times. Dealership is completely unhelpful. They say they can't duplicate the problem so their is no problem.
