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 failure was noticed while driving 15 mph. She took the vehicle to the dealer and they stated that the intermediate shaft failed and was a very common issue with the vehicle. The contact was informed that since the vehicle was out of warranty, she would be responsible for the repairs. The manufacturer was aware of the failure, but stated that there was no recall. The contact believes that the manufacturer should be responsible and that a recall should be issued. The failure mileage was 50,000 and current mileage was 55,000.
