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.

problem #1

  • 5,332 miles


Purchased the vehicle new with less than ten miles on odometer. From new, the vehicle produced a strong odor of burning or melting plastic every time it was driven. Clutch began slipping and then catastrophically failed at 5100 miles. Towed to dealership, clutch replaced. At 7,200 miles, clutch throw-out bearing failed, dealer replaced. At 11,709 miles, throw out bearing failed again, dealer discovered clutch was on the verge of second failure during service. A second replacement clutch has been ordered. Advised by service manager that cause of all failures was that a "plug" of some sort had worked loose, causing clutch to remain engaged at all times, leading to clutch failure. If clutch failure occurred at intersection or rail crossing, this manufacturing defect could lead to the severe injury or even the death of occupants in the disabled vehicle, as this failure renders the vehicle immobile.
