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.

Actually the transmission failed twice. Second time not under warranty. First time the coolant couplings failed and coolant leaked into he gearbox, fouling and ruining the gears. Second time the valve bodies failed. $3500 to fix and a month of down time because transmission shop dithered.
