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.

While driving, the (3rd) gear went out. The transmission was checked and pieces of the gear was found. The transmission was replaced at an independent transmission mechanic (northeastern transmission). The parts were taken to the dealership, however they refused to inspected the parts. The consumer then contacted the manufacturer, but they were not willing to assist. (northern Ohio automotive, 7513 tyler blvd; mentor oh 44060, 440 942 2524
