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.

2004 Nissan 350Z developed problems with the clutch.** answer required***. two independent transmission experts stated it was highly unlikely that a burned clutch and grooved flywheel was due to owner abuse as the dealer had stated. When the consumer received the vehicle back it had a completely different feel, the clutch was much easier to push than before and the clutch engaged more quickly. The owner of the transmission shop drove the consumers vehicle before and after, and he also stated the change was probably due to the adjustment or replacement of the hydraulic mechanism on the clutch.

Car began shifting funny, unable to accelerate. Took car to dealer. They determined that the clutch and fly wheel were bad. Car only has 10000 miles on it and owned less than a year. Clutch and fly wheel replaced at my expense, after many arguments with Nissan.
