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.

Just over 70k and the clutch went out. It smelled terrible. Smoke was coming from the bell housing. At first I thought the trans went. Took it to a trans shop and they said I needed a new clutch. Only $675. I said thank you and towed it home. I replaced the clutch with a High Performance CenterForce Stage 2 Clutch with lifetime warranty. That only cost me $250. It took me 2 days to put it in, but save me a bunch.
