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.

I was driving on the interstate at 70 mph I went to down shift to 3rd but got 1st. I know this is not supposed to happen so I thought I was in 3rd gear. I let off the clutch and the car went from 70 mph to about 35 mph in 3 sec. I would have went through the windshield if not for the seat belt which work fine. Well this ordeal left my car with 1 or 2 blown cylinder heads, bent, valves water out tail pipe and its not due to the fact I didn't know how to drive a stick I have been driving them since I got out of school in 96..can you tell me why this happened " and if a is defect found will they repair my car"
