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.

Boxster 6-cyl

Driving on freeway at about 70 mph and intermediate shaft failed. Created dangerous situation as engine started billowing smoke, obscuring traffic causing many cars to swerve dangerously and had stop abruptly. Car towed to repair shop empire autohaus, Inc. Where problem was diagnosed. Owned car for three years with zero problems and regular service. Learned that many Porsche automobiles with the M96 engine (up to 25%) with less than 90,000 miles have had same problem and has yet to be addressed by manufacturer.
