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.

Montero 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

At 35000, the trunk door latch mechanism is broken. At 57000 miles check engine light lit, caused by spark plugs or spark plug wires open. Replace all plugs and wires at dealership, cost $300.not covered by warranty. At 77000 miles, check engine light lit, dealership replaced catalytic converter under warranty but I pay for the oxygen sensor plus labor that goes with the catalyst.old parts not available. Car driven about 3 miles home from dealeship after replacing the cat. Converter, the check engine light lit again. Dealership checked and said another oxygen sensor is bad. Total 4 oxygen sensors in the system. Cost $230 to replace one sensor. I could not believe that these sensors will go bad at the same time. Is that a coinsidence or manufacturer parts defects"?"
