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.

2001 was the last year the 100,00 mile/10 year power train warranty was provided, and thank goodness, because a new transmission would have cost $5,000 to $7,000 dollars. That's right!! I don't know what I would have done. This is my first brand new car & I have ALWAYS changed the oil when due and done all the services, etc. Apparently, this is a known problem. I just squeaked in under 10 years and my mileage was probably more in the 56K range.
