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 #1

May 152007


  • Manual transmission
  • 2,000 miles


Shifting from 1st to 2nd gear was rough sometimes. I checked the torque on bolt of driver's side engine mount and it was loose. It turned under 30 feet-lb. Bolt was supposed to be 70-80 feet-lb from the factory. After bolt was tightened to spec shifting became a lot smoother. I was convinced that if bolt was not tightened failure of driver' S-side engine mount bolt would have eventually resulted in a couple thousand more miles. Vehicle only had 3000 miles on it -engine would have dropped over left side driveshaft, causing loss of control of vehicle. Refer to investigation PE07015.
