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.

2011 Jeep Wrangler. Consumer writes in regards to vehicle clutch issues the consumer stated while sitting in traffic, she began to smell transmission fluid and then an electrical burning smell. Then a yellow light illuminated on the dashboard and there was smoke coming from under the hood on the passenger side. The police and fire truck were called to the scene. The fire fighter lifted the hood and there was a smell of transmission fluid and a burning electrical smell, but the smoke had dissipated and there was no fire. The vehicle was towed to the dealer. A diagnosis revealed the clutch overheated by driving in first gear as the consumer inched her way up a hill. The dealer stated the problem started with the clutch sensor overheating and that lead to the flywheel overheating. The clutch pressure plate was replaced.
