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.

The contact owns a 2009 Toyota Fj cruiser. The contact stated that while entering into traffic, he heard a breaking noise as the vehicle stalled without warning. The vehicle was towed to a dealer and the contact was informed that the transmission had fractured into several pieces. The vehicle was repaired after the failure was reported to the manufacturer. The symptoms of the failure recurred and the vehicle was taken to a second dealer. The second dealer stated that a component had been installed in the vehicle backward. The vehicle was then taken back to the original dealer who then repaired the vehicle at no cost. The VIN was unavailable. The failure and current mileage was 60,000.
