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.

A constant "percolating" or rattling sound is heard while driving slowly and especially on uneven surfaces. The noise gets worse and more consistent as the car is driven. Since nobody can tell me what it is, I must assume it could be a safety concern. The noise became worse after a strut was replaced at 100 miles. The noise got louder after an attempt to fix it by installing a new coil (F-spring?). I was told that this is a characteristic of the car so they will not make attempts to repair it when I request specific actions. I have heard similar noises in at least 7 other same model cars. Three separate people have driven the car and confirm the noises. If there is a structural weakness it would be a safety concern.
