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 stated there was only half an inch between the front tires and the macpherson strut supports. The vehicle was taken to the dealership for inspection, although there was no problem. The dealership determined this is how the vehicle was manufactured; therefore, no repairs were available. The design of the coil spring mount has a razor sharp edge on the strut which could cause a serious accident. Updated 03/17/06.

The contact stated on May 14, 2005 the vehicle was taken to the dealership for scheduled maintenance, and to check on a noise they could hear coming from the front of the vehicle. The technicians were unable to duplicate the problem. On September 19 2005 the vehicle was taken back to the dealership to find out what was causing this noise. A technician test drove the vehicle and heard the noise, and determined it was the front struts that needed to be replaced. Repairs were made to the vehicle. After the repairs the vehicle was still experiencing the same noise problems. The vehicle was taken back on a third occasion O on October 14, 2005. This time they replaced the clutch drum module, the filters, and the power train drive line was lubricated. The vehicle was driven home and it experienced the same problem as before. The vehicle was taken back to the dealership, and they were unable to duplicate the problem.

While driving consumer heard a knocking noise from the driver side wheel. Consumer drove it to the dealer for inspection, and mechanic determined that driver's side strut needed to be replaced due to corrosion. The vehicle pulled to the left while driving. The dealer balanced the wheels.
