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.

My car when I bought it seemed to have a small little stall upon take off from a rolling stop. I have had it for almost a year I have taken it in due to what i thought was a cv joint problem or something else and the shop told me i had only 1 engine mount holding my engine down. Here is my question. Is this something that happens to a car with fairly low miles like my car when i bought it? How do they break? I think they were broke when I bought the car but how do I prove that?? There are 7 of them total for my little 4 cylinder. sp. The price ranges from 50 to 125 for each one! not to count the labor. Has anyone had this problem? Is it a common problem? Thank you
