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.

Transmission has had to be replaced 3 times in 2005 Suzuki Verona. Initial problem started 1 month after purchase (new), but dealership managed to replace several other parts first and finally consented to replace transmission 3 months after purchase date. 2nd replacement was exactly 4 years later at 68,000 miles. After transmission replaced, could hear strange sound from under hood and took it back to dealership. Dealer said it was "tire noise". one week later we are now getting a third transmission. Car starts to "hiccup" and once jarred hard enough to lock seat belts. Dealership has replaced parts under warranty, but has not addressed continuing problems such as shuddering breaks, air bag light that stays on continuously (told this would not affect air bag performance), peeling paint or hub caps that keep popping off.
