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 2002 Buick Rendezvous. When the engine was started the contact could hear the engine rods and lifters knocking. The noise would stop after 3 mins. The contact has kept up with regular maintenance on the vehicle. The vehicle has not been taken to the dealer for this problem. The contact also stated that the fuel level sensor failed and the air conditioner recharge unit failed and he has had them repaired. The current mileage was 56000 miles.
