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.

Clutch problem: 5 speed manual transmission. Clutch sticks after pressing it in, when it comes back up. This happens when temperature is cold. Dealer checked out 4 times, could not reproduce problem. Independent mechanic found problem at once and states that clutch bearing needs lubricated otherwise will wear prematurely. Dealer refuses to do this. Light problem: Problem exactly the same as 99-00 recall NHTSA campaign id: 00V405000. Year 2001 should get included in recall. Dealer "fixed" problem once by "cleaning the socket" problem reoccured. Required recall fix is to replace bulb and socket and not "clean socket".
