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 vehicle about 35 mph when shifting the vehcle from 2 speed to 3 speed the transmission exploded without a reason, resulting in a fire. The vehicle was not hot at all, and the transmission had a hole on top. Service dealer said they had to wait a few days to find out where the problem was started.
