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.

While driving 55 mph, suddenly there was a popping noise from the front end of the vehicle. When this occurred the vehicle jerk forward and the motor locked up. This almost resulted in the vehicle flipping over. The clutch had blown up, which caused the motor to lock up. The cause of the clutch blowing up is undetermined.
