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.

Clutch pedal sticks to floor when weather is cold causing difficulty shifting and or getting vehicle to move. When outdoor temps are below 35F, clutch pedal will stay depressed until vehicle warms up or is manually pulled back up with hands. Pedal may stay depressed when attempting to drive or pop back up abruptly causing stalls in traffic, spinning the tires or other dangerous actions. Problem is causing excessive clutch wear and chatter, damage to motor mounts and tires.

Drivers floor mat retaining clip begins to separate from normal usage. Separation allows mat to move forward enough that edge of mat is caught by clutch pedal during gear changes. Mat lifts over clutch pedal and becomes entangled with clutch and brake pedal when trying to shift gears. Mat interference causes accidental and aggressive brake application when attempting to shift gears. Mat has been replaced by dealer previously but problem returns after a few months of usage.
