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.

Over all have been very happy with this car. bought used in 2005 with 21,000 miles on it. now have 162,000. wife loves it. car is a loaded cream puff with everything on it. has always driven and handled well, very nice ride. I am ,however, the fixer in the family and have been though most of the run of problems with the car. I have abs brake/ no awd problem at the moment with no joy. Replaced the left front hub/ sensor, full brake job on all wheels 2 times now. get brake chatter on left front wheel when slowing to turn left. car wares out rear brake pads fast, 3 sets so far. Window regulator clips are plastic junk, should have been metal from the start. Repaired 3 windows with liquid steel on the clips. Dealer would not tell me replacement clip could be found. wanted $150.00 each for new regulators. Had a valve job done at 140,000 miles to fix head problem/anti-freeze use. 3 batterys now. New one today with alternator change out. Changed out 2 water pumps & 1 starter. I would really like to fix the brake problem, with bad weather, no abs and all wheel drive is dangerous.

Nice vehicle, BUT I bought it for the all wheel drive. ABS wheel bearings have been replaced. Still the "code" tells the technician that the sensor is bad, this is the 3rd wheel bearing/ABS sensor. If the ABS doesn't work, than the all wheel system doesn't work. The fuel gauge doesn't work either. I'm wondering if the main "body computer" ECM is defective? OR, as many people have written about, that I have a wire chaffing problem. The search for the fix continues.
