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.

This car is a reliable car but the timing chain damper needed to be replaced because of a loud rattling sound coming from inside the timing cover area. The timing chain set and timing tensioner had to be replaced. The cost is about $700.00. I drove over 20,000 miles in this condition with no other problems but the noise was too much.
