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.

Can't complain too much. Purchased the car knowing it had a failing input shaft bearing. Just posting as a lookout for others. Car made a grinding sound in neutral while clutch engaged. With the clutch disengaged the noise went away. Noticeable grinding/whine in all gears, louder under acceleration. Replacing this on my own should only cost a couple hundred dollars with new seals and fluid. Expect upwards of $2500 or more if you take the car to a repair shop.
