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 car has a piston knock when it is cold, when it gets warm, it tends to go away, but you can still faintly hear it. I have driven the car with this problem for a few years, and nothing has ever come from it.

Century Custom 3.1L V-6

  • Automatic transmission

I believe this is because GM cheaped out it's engine manufacturing by no longer matching pistons to cylinder bores. Now this car sounds like a freight train!
